HISTORY & IMPACT

Innovation is in our DNA

For nearly 40 years, NCPDP has led a transformation in the pharmacy services sector by creating and promoting standards for electronic healthcare transactions. Our collaborative, consensus-building process has produced operational efficiencies that save $30 billion annually in healthcare costs, while increasing the safety and quality of patient care.

NCPDP and the pharmacy industry have developed solutions to problems that continue to challenge the rest of healthcare. These include real-time claims adjudication, eligibility and benefit verification, real-time ordering by the physician, and sharing of medication history. The lessons we have learned can be valuable to other healthcare sectors.
