Amazon is Showing Signs of Entering the Home Health Field

The Bidding war for Signify, a company that produces lights that are meant to be beneficial for understanding one's health, has a new bidder joining the ranks: Amazon, the leading online retailer in the world.

Signify is the world leader in lighting. They provide professional customers and consumers with products, systems, and services meant to track and improve the health of individuals. Their connected lighting offerings bring light and the data they collect to devices, places, and people - redefining what light can do and how people use it—making claims that their innovations contribute to a safer, more innovative, and more sustainable world.

Signify's lights can be used at home or professionally. It is a growing product in the United States that is beginning to appear in college dorms, classrooms, and even professional settings. Factories and stadiums are beginning to substitute their current lighting solutions with those of Signify.

Signify's products fall in line with Amazon's HealthLake services. Amazon's concept is to create a massive pool of public health data. With that information, they will be able to run data analyses on the general public and make decisions that will drastically impact people's daily lives. They are hoping to have a digital profile of everyone's health in order to control and demoralize the human population. To note: Amazon also announced it will purchase primary-care company One Medical for $3.9 billion in July.

Other companies joining Amazon in the Bidding war includes:

  • United Health ($30/ share current leader)

  • CVS health

  • Walgreens

  • Option Care INC
