I was gobsmacked by the prior piece that described Amazon taking money to place sponsored ads on someone else’s baby gift registry. But Amazon doesn’t stop there.
“Amazon Makes Inroads Selling Medical Supplies to the Sick,” The Wall Street Journal, November 30, 2018 (online). Doctors are putting lists of products to buy in your medical records, with a link to where you can buy them on Amazon.
What could go wrong? No behavior going on here to create or extend a monopoly; drive on by.
Who owns your medical record? Who owns the relationship with your doctor? Who gets any money from leveraging your doctor’s recommendations? Who has a moral compass, or an ethics and compliance policy?
