Pharmacists' active involvement needed to bolster telepharmacy in Japan's rural communities
Posted Jan 9, 2022 from healthcareitnews.com
Japan has only made telepharmacy available in September.
Although telepharmacy has been found useful in Japan's rural areas, the active involvement of pharmacists in these communities will help boost its effectiveness.
A recently published study in the journal Drug Discoveries & Therapeutics explored patients' perspectives on telepharmacy in a mountain region in the country.
It was only in September that the Japanese government made available telepharmacy, five years since telemedicine was permitted in rural areas across the country.
