Amazon is trying to fill the gap between over-the-counter and little things that require more consultation but not a full medical appointment and office visit.

Amazon started remote health, then stopped it. Now they're starting a new version. The good thing about the tech industry is that they try and keep trying until they can find a way to make it work.
