For Gafam, the health sector is considered the new frontier, the market that offers almost unlimited opportunities, in its simple digitization but also in its transformation and personalization under the effect of data, as well as in the development of advanced biotechnology. In the United States, they also see it as a way to make health care more accessible. The Gafam dream of themselves as technical service providers but also as real players in the care process. It is not always simple and the first incursions have not always been successful due, as in the banking sector, to a very complicated regulation which, moreover, changes geographically. Thus, Amazon Care, which offers health services to companies and their employees with teleconsultations and home visits within the hour if necessary, is struggling to take off. Haven, the healthcare project launched by JPMorgan Chase, Amazon and Berkshire Hathaway, has shut down after three years and $100 million in losses. Amazon does not let go of the piece so far. After launching Amazon Pharmacy following the takeover of online group PillPack, the global e-commerce leader has just written a big check to buy 1Life Healthcare. The 3.9 billion dollars disbursed demonstrate the strategic interest of health for Andy Jassy, ​​its new CEO. In the United States, 1Life Healthcare operates 182 medical centers under the One Medical banner and manages the healthcare of 8,000 companies with teleconsultations and real visits. It is a front-line operator who plays the disruption with luxurious and trendy firms in major American cities.
