Beijing has released draft regulations aimed at regulating online medical consultations in the city, according to an August 21 report by Chinese new agency Beijing Daily. The regulations prohibit the use of artificial intelligence or other means to automatically generate prescriptions. The guidelines state that medical institutions engaged in online medical diagnosis must strengthen their medication management, and prescriptions should be made by physicians in person with pharmacists’ review and approval, the regulations stated. Currently, the draft proposal is open for feedback, and citizens can provide their suggestions to the Beijing Municipal Health Commission by September 16. [Beijing Daily, in Chinese]
