To our valued community:

We are delighted to share that we’ve signed an agreement to be acquired by Amazon. We believe this will allow us to further deliver better health, better care, better value, within a better team environment through our technology-powered, human-centered model. There is a great opportunity to make the healthcare experience more accessible, affordable and even enjoyable, and joining Amazon is a tremendous next step in innovating and expanding access to high-quality, high-value healthcare.

One Medical cares deeply about the communities we serve, and has been listening to your questions and feedback in the days since the agreement was announced. Here are a few things that we want you to know:

  • Nothing is changing right now - While we announced that we’ve signed a deal to be acquired, this deal is not yet closed. Amazon and One Medical continue to operate independently.
  • Our commitment to protecting your health data is unwavering - Nothing about this changes One Medical’s compliance with HIPAA and all other applicable privacy laws and regulations. The clinical providers that you know and trust will continue to be your advocates and partners in your health journey, including in the safeguarding of your private information. Once the transaction closes, One Medical customers’ HIPAA Protected Health Information will be handled separately from other Amazon business, as required by law. As required by law, Amazon will never share One Medical patients’ personal health information outside of One Medical for advertising or marketing purposes without clear permission from the patient.
  • Providing high-quality and convenient care continues to be our top priority - One Medical and Amazon entered into this agreement because we are committed to delivering on the long-term mission of helping more people get better care.

We look forward to what is ahead for our One Medical community.
