    Amazon-One Medical deal could affect the future of primary care

    Amazon’s announcement this week that it would acquire One Medical, a primary care provider, for $3.9 billion — its largest health care acquisition to date — was for many Americans likely just another item on the ever-expanding news ticker tape. But an acquisition of a primary care company of this size by a tech giant like Amazon should be taken seriously because of its massive implications for the future of primary care, health care delivery, and health equity. One Medical is a membership-based (members pay $199/year) primary care company that currently cares for nearly 800,000 people. The company’s medical offices are strategically placed near where people work, and members can…

    Netflix-style approach to wellbeing: Why PHSPs are the future of mental health

    “I would really hope that the future of benefits in Canada would be something that employees are able to maximize – a benefits plan that they’re actually able to use,” she explained. “A lot of the complaints that we hear from clients is that, while they have coverage, it’s not for things that apply to their employees. That’s hands down the biggest issue.” This is why employers are urged to consider alternative approaches to benefits – specifically Private Health Services Plans (PHSP), otherwise known as Health Spending Accounts (HSA). These plans offer the much-needed flexibility for employers and their employees, allowing people to prioritise health expenses that apply to them.…

Lipman’s ideas, the reporter writes, might be considered “eccentric” at best. But some of MVA’s principles can help inform how we build more equitable, healthy, accessible, and green cities. In a new peer-reviewed paper, Lipman and…
