    We could soon be talking to Alexa about much more than music, cooking timers and shopping lists, as Amazon is reportedly building a team to incorporate its digital assistant with healthcare.

    The news comes just a few months after Amazon boss Jeff Bezos announced in January that his company was teaming up with JP Morgan and Warren Buffet in a bid to lower American healthcare costs.

    According to leaked internal documents seen by CNBC, Amazon is assembling a "health and wellness" team within the division which oversees Alexa.
