Regarding electronic prescriptions, construction of a structure with systems such as online license as their foundation is in progress.  At the joint meeting on that day, the details of the points issued at each occasion for the operation of electronic prescriptions were organized and operational images were shown, with modifications of receipt computer systems at medical institutions and pharmacies set for next year.
