continued over

Amazon's exclusive medical devices

brand, called Choice, of which initial

products are blood glucose monitors

and blood pressure monitors, both with

mobile apps, that offer measurement

tracking, data mobility, and reminders.

Amazon has made its name as the place

for buying commodities, so commodity

medical devices doesn't come as that

much of a surprise.

In July of 2019 AgaMatrix raised $56m

to continue to develop its WaveForm

CGM which will be used to increase

capacity, product development and to

commercialize WaveForm CGM in Europe

and to gain FDA clearance in the US. The

company's chief financial officer, Jackson

McAdam, commented that, "There is

great opportunity for our innovative sensor

technology to capture significant market

share through increased investment

in production equipment, research &

development and operational resources

afforded by this financing. We are also

excited by the favourable results of the

WaveForm CGM in clinical trials, and are

eager to pursue offering the product for

people with both T1 and T2 diabetes."

Amazon

Someone in Silicon Valley came up with

the neat FAANG acronym. I think they

had to put in Netflix to make the acronym

work, otherwise it would have been FAAG,

whereas FAANG has a bit more bite to it,

does it not, making it more memorable.

Fact is, Netflix is simply not (yet) as big

as the others, and Amazon is the biggest.

CB Insights is a tech market

intelligence platform that regularly reports

on tech companies. As it reported

earlier this year, "Throughout the 2000s,

Amazon's e-commerce dominance

paved a path of destruction through

books, music, toys, sports, and a range

of other retail verticals. With its expertise

in complex supply chain logistics and data

collection, Amazon is attacking a whole

host of new industries."

Amazon's been eyeing up the US

drugstore business for decades then, in

1999, Amazon bought 40% of Drugstore.

com. Bezos would later hire its CEO, Kal

Raman, to run hardlines (retail products

which are hard to the touch) at Amazon.

CB Insights continues, "Amazon (Arcadia

Group) proceeded to lay low in the

pharma space until 2016, when Amazon

reportedly received its first licenses to sell

pharmaceutical products and drugs from

various state boards across the United

States. In 2018, Amazon made another

move towards gaining footing in this

notoriously complex and highly regulated

space: last June it acquired PillPack in

the US in a deal worth around $750m.

Now, it's building out a nationwide

network of American pharmacy licenses

and distribution that could one day allow

Prime users to receive their medications

through Amazon."

With Amazon's Choice brand of

products, including a blood glucose

monitor, it will be both selling its own blood

testing products but delivering them too.

Meanwhile American blood glucose

monitoring company One Drop has also

partnered with Amazon's Choice brand in

order to expand health services for both

companies. One Drop CEO and Founder,

Jeff Dachis (who has Type 1 diabetes)

has commented, "Of the 30 million

Americans living with diabetes, 20 million

are also living with high blood pressure.

There is an urgent need to better serve

people managing multiple conditions

through simple, convenient, evidencebased health management services on

their mobile phonesWe're going to work

with Amazon's Choice to come up with a

digital care solution

Through our partnership, Choice

devices will integrate directly with the

One Drop mobile app gaining access

to One Drop's diabetes, blood pressure

and weight management capabilities,

including artificial intelligence-powered

automated decision support.

Apple

A selection of Apple stores in the US

have started selling the wireless glucose

monitoring system One Drop Chrome.

Purchasers receive one year of unlimited

diabetes coaching via One Drop's awardwinning mobile app that incorporates

coaching and an education programme.

That has been recently expanded to offer

programmes for pre-diabetes, weight

management, high blood pressure, and

managing high cholesterol. It connects

each user with a dedicated, certified

diabetes educator to help them succeed

in managing their condition. The app

also offers a personal health assistant -

a digital tool for monitoring medication,

food, and physical activity as well as

blood sugar, blood pressure, weight, and

other health markers.

One Drop's Chrome meter beams into the Apple Watch.
