NCPDP has updated the NCPDP eRx Validation Suite, available at its new website https://tools.ncpdp.org.

    User improvements to the site include a dropdown menu that allows EHR and ePrescribing system vendors to choose which of the SCRIPT Standards they wish to test: either the 2015 version designed to meet the requirements of the Promoting Interoperability Programs, or the 2017 version used to ensure correct implementation of the NCPDP SCRIPT Standard Version 2017071, which CMS has mandated be implemented by January 1, 2020.
        
    NCPDP announced in July that it formally took ownership of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) electronic prescribing testing tool approved for use under the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC) Health IT Certification Program (Certification Program). NCPDP is the first healthcare standards development organization (SDO) to provide end-to-end stewardship in standards development and testing for the industry.
