Medicine Electronic Commerce Way in the New Situation

Health care reform a hot topic, pharmaceutical surging electricity supplier, the reason not only by the State Council executive meeting made it clear Internet +, Peoples National policies to encourage innovation and other guidelines affect, the key initiatives related to health care reform involves the vital interests of every citizen. The pharmaceutical industry is referred to as the last piece of virgin land traditional Internet industry, it is to be regarded as a hot blue ocean capital side.

2011 pharmaceutical retail electricity supplier began to sprout start, when 400 million turnover in 2015 exceeded 15 billion transactions, but that only accounted for about 4% of the entire pharmaceutical consumer market. The huge line of drugs used in hospitals drug sales is the main force, but as became clear national health reform policy clearly requires hospitals reduced the proportion of drug, online pharmaceutical health care around the corner and so the electricity supplier has a great good!

First, the problems of medical e-commerce

Currently, e-commerce in our stage of rapid development, there are still many problems to be solved. Such as security issues, payment issues, distribution issues. These problems are also common in China's pharmaceutical e-commerce. Combined with the characteristics of the medical and health industry, the main problem of medical e-commerce as follows:

1, limit policy

Medical e-commerce of high barriers to entry, access to online sale of drugs must have qualifications

Three conditions: First, there must be a certain size and influence of the chain; the second is the lack of medicine electricity supplier personnel; third is Banqi three cards - MIIT network license issued by the Commission, Food and Drug Administration issued the 'Internet drug information service qualification certificate 'and' Internet and drug transaction services credentials. '

Unlike American medical separation and electronic prescription system, the domestic pharmaceutical retail conditions due to the control and supervision system of medicine, has been no major breakthrough in the development of the electricity supplier medicine subject to relevant policies, online sale of drugs and medical insurance can not By docking, manufacturers and hospital pharmacies are completely changed the main line sales channels and policies to support thinking, policies, regulatory loopholes lead to illegal Internet pharmacies asymmetrical competition issues seriously restricting the development of online pharmacies.

2, lack of profitability

The cost of increasing that price online pharmacies in the state, self-built website traffic is small, third-party platform is intense price, high-volume cost and other factors many companies into e-commerce for many years, under the premise with strong cost control ability, also only achieved a slight profit. Other online pharmacies are basically at a loss, the industry analysis, the real money online pharmacies do not have a few, mainly because online pharmacies SKU many categories, under the pharmaceutical supply chain and procure electricity lines can not fully distinguish supply chain support is not in place, general business too small to pharmacy services is still exploratory stage. And has not cut into the hospital medicine 'bonanza' zone;

3, the logistics dilemma

Unlike other drugs commonly used products, such pharmaceutical drugs particularity logistics is also required. Delivery orders for individual drugs more, a single purchase order amount is smaller, more dispersed distribution of customers, which requires logistics distribution center must be able to support a minimum packaging drugs demolition zero efficiency, sorting, reviewing, a library, distribution, etc. , the whole package demolition zero, sorting capacity will determine the level of accuracy and efficiency of logistics and distribution. The pharmaceutical GSP regulatory requirements, storage and transportation of drugs requiring temperature controlled at 20 degrees, the status quo can not meet the regulatory requirements, whether there will be the future of medicine dedicated box for easy identification given green storage and transportation channel, to ensure full compliance electricity sold drugs.

4, competition in the industry varies greatly

Pharmaceutical major electricity supplier at this stage is divided into three forces, the first unit is a pure Internet model of medicine electricity supplier, subdivided into hospital doctors as the main electricity supplier, such as micro-medicine doctors, mainly to sales of drugs such as search drug diversion , traditional medicine B2C Internet Gangster and 020 pharmaceutical sector such as Lynx medicine museum, Baidu medicine directly, Jingdong home, etc;

Second strand traditional medicine pharmacy in transition such as the electricity supplier Yixintang Yunnan, Shaanxi, by means of the line for many years experience in the pharmaceutical supply chain and the PRC, medicine and other advantages involved in medicine electricity supplier;

The third shares of companies involved in the pharmaceutical industry, such as the electricity supplier Medicine Health America Pharmaceutical, Tong Ren Tang;

Three evil dragons mixed medicine electricity supplier, mutual restraint mutual needs, intense competition in the pharmaceutical market liberalization customer, a client with incomplete cost competition has reached 200 yuan. The final winner, the key depends on the starting point for the electricity supplier medicine pain points solving skills, the ability to ground the supply chain of electronic business support capabilities, medical services, participate in the financial and competitive workforce;

Located in the ancient capital of thirteen Xi'an PRC, pharmaceutical chain, as China's top ten retail pharmaceutical chain, currently has 680 stores in Shaanxi, specialty pharmaceutical wholesale distribution companies a number, 11 Pu Tai of Chinese Medicine, Chinese Herbal Medicine Plant, pregnant the case of baby chains, convenience store chains and other formats, the chairman of Ho Yu, Wang Tong, general manager of the leadership is how to transition to the Internet in medicine, as the Northwest pharmaceutical commercial enterprises, human resources, the environment does not have the advantage, is how rapid development of the pharmaceutical industry is worth learning to re-examine, and perhaps many of the Yi medicine pharmaceutical electricity supplier electricity suppliers revelation will ever inspired!

Yee as a traditional medicine pharmaceutical retail enterprises to adapt to the tide, relying on the decision-making management level Yee 20 years of operating experience in medicine, a careful analysis of the competitive environment, the electricity supplier medicine combine their pharmaceutical supply chain advantage from the beginning of the layout of Medicine electricity supplier on the opposite, customer premise medication safety, from the customer needs to buy? Convenient to buy? Needs of professional pharmacy services as a starting point to cut medicine electricity supplier.

Pain from the pharmaceutical industry, the electricity supplier point of departure can not be ground service, to spend heavily to build three-dimensional Yee pharmaceutical business platform - free online doctor, quickly consumers in the PRC, the drug delivery home APP; health knowledge Daquan, emergency medication, new special medicine, nutritious home Yee focused micro-channel public number, based on 680 customers fast, interactive micro-channel development, and 10 community stores several professional diseases of micro-channel professional community, the manufacturers, hospitals, doctors, customers gathered in professional diseases WeChat community; active and work closely with various third-party medical platform, currently co-Lynx medicine museum, medical network, 360 good medicine, Jingdong Mall, Jingdong home, Baidu takeaway so steadily actively promoting for Yi Kang home own platform trial and error to learn advanced experience, also rich in its own stores sales channels.

With the current pharmaceutical B2C business platform for third-party medical trial to deal directly stop the outflow of hospital prescription drugs, drug distribution floor two-vote system, all kinds of medicine to accelerate the electricity supplier industry segments and ground services, but there is a flawed impassable, electric medicine Suppliers generally not at the cost of large profitable situation, which way to go, the PRC pharmaceutical medicine as a channel electricity supplier is so deal with it!

1, the first of its own blacksmith hard - under the new situation of health care reform, the overall domestic pharmaceutical development of e-commerce is still in its infancy. Inadequate laws and regulations, underdeveloped supporting logistics system, the lack of both information technology and pharmaceutical knowledge of compound talents and subject to policy reasons, medical e-commerce market immaturity and other factors. Yee pharmaceutical careful analysis of its core competitive edge, 400 million yuan invested heavily in a new 50,000 square meters of modern large-scale logistics warehousing base, the newly completed 38 acres of Chinese Herbal Medicine in September formally put into production, the existing information system the overall transformation of the 680 stores by location and store size segmentation characteristics of traditional medicines plus new category of professional pharmacy ---- hospital prescription drug efflux docking specialty stores; new drugs, nutritious specialty stores, community services and chronic disease management features shops; direct and rapid inquiry, medical specialty stores; cosmetics and pharmaceuticals, baby specialty stores, so that customer demand for more accurate and efficient.

Based on this part of the original high-rise stores worried by rising concerns about the impact of the Internet costs decline in performance, specifically in the PRC medicine every year under the new shop grand strategy 150 4.0 pharmacy has been completely changed in the past worried about the burden now become Yee medicine the overall layout of a fortress.
