亚马逊进军医疗保险遭业界质疑

2018年1月,亚马逊、摩根大通和伯克希尔哈撒韦公司联合推出了一项风投基金,希望借此降低三家公司员工的医疗保健成本。

尽管目前三家公司并未透露该基金的具体细节,但这样的合作关系已经导致医疗保健企业股价暴跌,尤其是医疗保险公司和药品供应链企业。

近日,风投公司Venrock针对300名医保专业人士进行了一次调查。在这些大型医保企业、投资方和学者中,有73%的人认为这个新基金对医保市场形成冲击可能还需时日,而且要面临不少挑战,而有25%的人认为这个新基金可能对自己即将进入的新市场毫无认知。

到底这个新基金将如何运作,我们还不得而知。

不过,摩根大通首席执行官Jamie Dimon认为,他看好这个新基金的长远发展。据了解,摩根大通可能会在未来两个月内为这个新机构挑选以为首席执行官。

Healthcare experts have their doubts about the new venture JPMorgan, Amazon, and Berkshire Hathaway are forming.

The venture, announced in January, is aimed at lowering healthcare costs for the companies' employees, though there haven't been many details about what that looks like. At the time, news of the partnership sent healthcare stocks plummeting, especially health insurers and members of the pharmaceutical supply chain who might be impacted by the three business giants getting into their lines of work.

But those who have been in the healthcare industry for a while are skeptical of the speed at which the venture could potentially threaten existing healthcare companies. Of the 300 healthcare professionals, large employers, investors, and academics surveyed by venture capital firm Venrock, 73% thought that it's going to take a lot longer than expected and face many challenges.

In particular, 25% of those surveyed said that the companies "have no idea what they're getting into."

"Oftentimes somebody bringing a new lens leads to great change, and sometimes someone bringing a new lens to things means they fall in the same hole that everybody else has fallen in previously," Venrock partner Bryan Roberts said.

It remains to be seen how the JPMorgan-Amazon-Berkshire Hathaway healthcare venture will unfold.

JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon, for his part, seems to have a long-term view of the venture. He said in his annual letter that he plans to report on the venture's progress "in the coming years." The venture's expected to pick a CEO in the next two months, Axios reported Tuesday.
