Amazon’s former Prime boss has been transferred to oversee the company’s health work.

According to Neil Lindsay’s LinkedIn profile and people familiar with the matter, he was promoted to Amazon’s global consumer business health and brand senior vice president last month.

According to people familiar with the matter, Lindsay’s current responsibilities include overseeing Amazon’s comprehensive healthcare work, including its online pharmacy, telemedicine, and health diagnosis departments. The person, who asked not to be named, said that he will continue to oversee Amazon’s global branding and marketing efforts.

For more than 11 years, Lindsay has held positions in various Amazon departments, including leading the company’s main Prime subscription business and managing global marketing. He also helped shape the brands of popular Amazon devices (such as Kindle e-readers) and Fire and Echo products.

Lindsay is a member of the “S Team”, an extremely influential executive team reporting to Amazon CEO Andy Jassy (Andy Jassy).

As the company deepens its influence in the healthcare industry, Amazon is using Lindsay to lead its health work. The company launched Amazon Pharmacy last year to make it easier to order prescriptions online, as a result of its acquisition of PillPack in 2018.

Amazon’s telemedicine service, called Amazon Care, was originally a pilot project for some of its employees.Earlier this year, Amazon expanded its program for all employees across the country and began offering it to employees of other companies

The company is also trying to attract healthcare companies to use its cloud computing services to manage their large amounts of data. At the same time, Amazon added a new healthcare application for its Alexa voice assistant and launched a health and fitness tracker called Halo.

Earlier this year, Amazon said it would close its joint venture Haven with Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan Chase. Three years ago, the safe haven was touted as an incubator for improving employer health programs.

Amazon did not publish information on prescription sales or the number of Halo devices sold.

But analysts expect that over time, healthcare will become a valuable business for the company. Loop Capital analysts estimate that Amazon’s revenue may increase by $72 billion by further expanding its healthcare business.
