Communication/Conferences: Internet giants collaborate in anticipation of online drug prescription sale authorization

February 10th 2015 - www.prnewswire.com

The internet sales giant Alibaba is working in close collaboration with Jo-Jo Drugstore, another Chinese group specialized in pharmaceutical sales on the internet, in order to anticipate the coming authorization from the Chinese Food and Drug Agency (CFDA) regarding the online sale of prescription medicines. A mobile application has already been released, allowing patients to take a picture of their prescription and comparing the prices of their medicines from online and physical pharmacies around them. The coming authorization arrives in a context of growing trend of counterfeit pharmaceutical products in China, trend to which Alibaba is trying to put an end to.
