Rising Implementation of e-Prescriptions in Hospitals to propel the e-Pharmacy Market

e-Prescription is the electronic prescribing technology that allows healthcare professionals to send the prescriptions electronically instead of using handwritten prescriptions. This technology has improved the efficiency of the pharmacy operations and pharmacy management. It also reduces the chances of errors that occur because of the handwriting of the doctors. There are pharmacy software’s that check for the appropriate dosage form and the proper drug that is being given to the patient. Doctors now prefer e prescriptions because patients get the ease of the access to medicine with the help of e-prescriptions. Countries like UK are putting more efforts in the implementation of the e-prescription. The NHS hospitals in England are planning to go paperless by the year 2020. This will increase the e-prescription rapidly in the future.

There are ePharmacy websites that does not sell drugs or medications without prescriptions. It is quite tough for the patients to upload the handwritten paper online.

Increasing Number of Illegal Online Pharmacies Limits the Growth of ePharmacy Market

According to the ASOP Global Foundation (Alliance for Safe Online Pharmacies), at any given time, 35,000 online pharmacy websites are active among which 96% are not legally following the laws and pharmacy standards. The counterfeit medication provided by illegal online pharmacies is manufactured under the unsafe conditions. In the year 2018, one of the Canadian online pharmacy was importing counterfeit cancer drugs and other drugs that were not approved by the regulatory body. For this, the pharmacy was fined around USD 34 million. Such instances are increasing day by day and that is the biggest factor contributing to the hindrance of the ePharmacy market. However, Organizations like ASOP Global Foundation are continuously giving attention towards such illegal online pharmacies and working towards the eradication of such pharmacies and let people buy safer online drugs. As per the American Pharmacist Association (APhA), around 36 million people from America buy prescription medicines online without the proper prescription. These circumstances are coming into picture because of the rising online pharmacies that allows people to buy drugs without prescription. Due to the availability of such illegal online pharmacies, people are getting access to the drugs that are banned to buy without prescription such as narcotics and opioids. Rising number of illegal pharmacies is having a great negative impact on ePharmacy market. However, the involvement of government and other associations in the eradication of illegal sell of online drugs is helping to reduce the number of unlawful or fake online pharmacies.
