All 295 drug retail enterprises in Qilihe district, Lanzhou, capital of Gansu province, have settled on a QR code platform, so that the local market supervision bureau can trace the source and whereabouts of medicines and better control risks.

The district's authority has organized pharmacy practitioners to participate in video training sessions to make sure they are proficient in the traceability system.
For those who are unregistered, fail to renew contracts in time, or lack operation experience, the supervisory personnel will teach them on the spot how to correctly use the platform.
In addition, supervisors are expected to randomly enter the system to inspect the basic information of the pharmacy, including inbound and outbound management and account management. They will inform the company as soon as possible to rectify any emerging problems.
