Consumers also have the ability to order prescription medicine without any embarrassment, for instance, issues relating to sexuality or adolescence that may be offensive.

Pharmacy establishments with onsite over-the-counter medicine strive to find any corresponding prescription from a physician before providing prescriptions. They fill out a questionnaire on a patient's health after obtaining a prescription for safe and secure distribution. The questionnaire is reviewed and endorsed by a medical doctor prior to being distributed.

Owing to these factirs, ePharmacy market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 21.1% over the coming 10 years.
