The e-prescribing system was introduced to improve convenience for patients when they use healthcare services. However, security is still a critical aspect because illegitimate e-prescribing systems can lead to serious problems. This paper aimed to propose a framework for preventing illegal issuance e-prescribing practices by applying case-by-case approaches and a cloud-based national prescription database.
