Amazon.com, Inc. is reportedly considering entering the prescription drug market in Japan.
The Nikkei newspaper, citing people involved in the project, reported that the online retail giant is planning to partner with small and medium-sized pharmacies to create a platform where patients can receive instructions on how to take medicines and have medications delivered to their homes.
The publication said that the service is projected to launch next year – allowing the pharmacies to sell to patients – when electronic prescriptions will be allowed in the country.
People would be allowed to obtain virtual prescriptions on the Amazon platform after receiving online medical care.
