“I need some medicine from your pharmacy, and do you guys deliver?” These days’ customers call with that special request of whether you can deliver. We are moving to an error where everyone wants everything to be delivered where they are. Despite the disappointments that come with shopping online, most people prefer buying items online because of the convenience. Online pharmacies have their own challenges especially with OTC medicines and self-prescribing. We have also drugs which require special instructions; most of the time that is overlooked assuming the patient person buying understands how the dawas are to be taken.
Nevertheless, the future of pharmacy is going to be ePharmacy in a few years to come. Prescription refills are expected to be completed more, at the moment most online pharmacies are selling OTC and beauty products. Patients still assume online meds are not genuine and this might take more time for them to build trust. Since technology and innovations don’t keep a pace with our expectations, it can seem forever for us to adapt with online pharmaceutical shopping, this means online pharmacies have to be patient for a while as their businesses grow. Good news is, guys setting up online stores at this very moment will be enjoying fruits of their endurance.
So, now that the future of pharmacy is epharmacy, so what? Or why am I taking about this? This is because I believe this is the best pharmacy could have and I am sure this will be the best experience ever. Everyone feels the need to save time, having medicine delivered to where you are is definitely stress free. Imagine contacting your doctor while you are in the house, a prescription is send to your device then you forward it to an online pharmacy then in less than 45 minutes medication is delivered to you without you leaving the house. Although this might change the way we interact it is still cool, for instance the face to face chat between healthcare provider and patient could fade off.
Let us hope expecting this will have a positive impact in future. It is a good feeling to find out that a number of ePharmacies are doing just fine. I should mention that, it is for them that we can now picture our future different. And it is important to note that we are headed somewhere, I am sure there is a lot to explore for us humans.
