The big news of the morning is that Amazon is buying One Medical, a previously venture-backed consumer healthcare company with a technology twist, in an all-cash deal worth $3.9 billion inclusive of debt. The announcement follows recent reporting that One Medical was in play.

Recall that Amazon has been making moves in the healthcare space for some time. Back in 2018, the AWS parent company bought PillPack, a consumer-focused online pharmacy, and it previously worked with Berkshire Hathaway and JPMorgan to revamp American healthcare, though that effort fizzled.
