THE LARGER TREND
Walmart has waded further and further into healthcare over the past several years. The company opened its first Walmart Health clinic in Georgia in 2019 and has since announced plans to expand into new markets this year.
Walmart has also had its eye on digital health as it acquired digital medication management company CareZone’s tech platform, patents and “key intellectual property.”
The retailer has even lent its pharmacy to the COVID-19 vaccine effort by participating in the Federal Pharmacy Retail Program.
