Prescription to the dispensing pharmacy in Tokyo?
Miracle Pharmacy Kanda can help you.
Kanda area near the center of Tokyo.
We’re sure there are many people from overseas who come to Japan on business trips or for other reasons.
If you were to catch a cold in Japan, wouldn’t you be worried about going to the hospital and getting medicine from the pharmacy?
- When you cannot understand the explanation from the pharmacist.
- When you don’t know how to ask a question if you have a question.
- Even if you can ask a question, the person who answers the question (pharmacist, etc.) is unable to do so.
At times like these, you may feel uneasy about living in Japan.
However, Miracle Pharmacy Kanda Store may be able to help you to get rid of your anxiety.
If it’s a simple medicine like cold medicine, you don’t have any problem with it, but…
Of course, if this is a cold and when you want just a cold medicine, you can still buy some medicine at the drugstore and take it, and you may take it and it’s done.
However, the problem is the case when you have to take a daily dose of medicines for such as influenza and other infections and lifestyle diseases.
These are not available at drugstores.
Also, when you have a lifestyle disease, there is the potential that the contents of your medication will change based on your daily physical condition and test results.
It’s good if you can understand the contents of the medicine. However, even if you do so, the language barrier can be a challenge for people overseas when you want to know about the contents and side effects of the medicine.
If it’s English, I think there are a lot of Japanese friends who are fluent in English or pharmacies and pharmacists who are capable of speaking English.
However, it may be very difficult to use other languages.
Miracle Pharmacy Kanda can accommodate people from abroad.
The language barrier can be a source of anxiety for those who have to be treated with medication.
Miracle Pharmacy’s Kanda store has a number of initiatives that are hard to find in other pharmacies to solve such problems.
This is what “mediPhone” does.
mediPhone is, in simple terms, a professional medical interpreting service that is available in 21 languages around the world.
This is just small examples, but it is a service that is widely available in Asian, European and South American languages.
This interpretation service is a perfect match for Tokyo, the center of Japan, where many people from abroad get together.
Multi-language support is necessity in the coming era
A new coronavirus that raged in 2020.
We’re sure there are people who avoided going to Japan because of this, but there are also people who had no choice but to go to Japan.
And this is the year of the Tokyo Olympics.
There should be many cases that people come to Japan from many countries and get sick because of the unfamiliar environment.
There’s a risk that you’ll get infected when you do, or even if you don’t, you’ll catch something like the flu.
Of course, it’s okay if nothing happened.
However, if that happens, we think it would be very uncomfortable in an unfamiliar environment.
In such a situation, what if someone who speaks the language of your country could explain the medicine to you in a way that you can understand?
We think you will be able to live your life in Japan with peace of mind.
This kind of thing is very rare for now, but I think this it will be strongly demanded in the future.
Miracle Pharmacy Kanda is a multilingual pharmacy by mediPhone.
Again, if you’re dealing with English, there are plenty of pharmacies with English-speaking pharmacists.
We can’t give you specific numbers because we don’t take statistics, but even so, there are not many pharmacies that support English in this country.
And there are only a few pharmacies in Japan that are able to support Asian languages such as Chinese and European languages.
Advantages of using Mediphone
Since we use Mediphone, it usually takes us a while to give you your medication, but you will be able to listen to the explanation of the medication in your language.
Mediphone is a professional medical interpreter service that can help you to ask questions about medicine, illness, and more.
If you don’t communicate well at the hospital and you are not prescribed medicine that you want, it is possible to find mistakes in your prescriptions by communicating with them.
Of course, we also check for prescription mistakes and irregularities in the dispensing of medicines, so we can detect errors in the prescription at the pharmacy.
Advantages of dispensing and delivering medicines by Mediphone compatible pharmacies:
- The ability to communicate in the patient’s own native language reduces misunderstandings.
- If you have any questions about your medication, you can ask them.
- Easy access to health counseling and other health support
Deciding which pharmacy to go to will make it easier to check the dosage of your medicine.
Not just speaking in your native tongue, but also helping you to take your medications safely and stay healthy.
And some of you may be buying your own medicine directly, but there are benefits for those people as well.
If the medication you take changes with your condition or the dose changes, you may not be able to cope just by purchasing it.
Even in such cases, it is still possible to receive the medicine safely by visiting the hospital regularly and dispensing it with a prescription at the pharmacy.
With Mediphone, you’ll get many advantages when you receive your medicines in a multilingual pharmacy.
Disadvantages of using Mediphone? Almost none.
We’ve written a lot about the advantages of Mediphone, but you might be wondering if there are also disadvantages.
We believe there are little or none of disadvantages.
If there are, you might be disconcerting since the pharmacy staffs don’t deal directly with you.
However, you can rest assured that Mediphone is staffed by professional medical interpreters, as described below.
- Interpreters specializing in medical care are available.
- Hire and train medical interpreters on your own.
- 365 days a year.
Our interpreters are not just able to speak fluent other languages, they are specialized in medical terminology, so they can adequately respond to difficult medical terms and convey the contents of medications.
