I. INTRODUCTION
There are many different ways in which “Quality” can be defined or approached.  There is no simple answer because quality is relative. It depends not only on the subject matter, but also on perceptions of quality from different viewpoints. An Economist might approach quality in terms of value for money. An Engineer's approach to quality might be one expressed in terms of technical accuracy and completeness. A journalist might say quality means accuracy of information and comprehensiveness.

But none of these perceptions are wholly right or wrong. What is needed is a balanced approach that accommodates as many requirements as possible, while accepting that no solution will be a perfect fit for all.

ONLINE PHARMACY SYSTEM
Since about the year 2000, a growing number of Internet pharmacies have been established worldwide. Many of these pharmacies are similar to community pharmacies, and in fact, many of them are actually operated by brick-and-mortar community pharmacies that serve consumers online and those that walk in their door. The primary difference is the method by which the medications are requested and received. Some customers consider this to be more convenient and private method rather than traveling to a community drugstore where another customer might overhear about the drugs that they take. Internet pharmacies (also known as online pharmacies) are also recommended to some patients by their physicians if they are homebound.

While most Internet pharmacies sell prescription drugs and require a valid prescription, some Internet pharmacies sell prescription drugs without requiring a prescription. Many customers order drugs from such pharmacies to avoid the "inconvenience" of visiting a doctor or to obtain medications which their doctors were unwilling to prescribe. However, this practice has been criticized as potentially dangerous, especially by those who feel that only doctors can reliably assess contraindications, risk/benefit ratios, and an individual's overall suitability for use of a medication. There also have been reports of such pharmacies dispensing substandard products.
