Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMZN) is reportedly considering expanding its telemedicine service called Amazon Care, which is currently available only for its employees.

Amazon Care is currently looking for qualified workers to fill positions in business development. In its job listing for a Business Development Manager (BDM), the virtual medical clinic states that the person who will be hired will “join an exciting new project team working to build a completely new best-in-class service offering.” The BDM will be “responsible to build and grow relationships with commercial and public sector enterprises.

According to CNBC, the e-commerce giant’s decision to build a business development team for Amazon Cares is a sign that it is planning to offer its telemedicine service beyond its employees.

The media outlet noted that Amazon has a history of testing its newly developed products and services on its workforce before offering it outside the company to a larger population.

Amazon Care already started contacting employers and health plans in Washington State regarding its intention to discuss opportunities for expansion, according to the media outlet based on information from a person familiar with the matter.
