CMS has mandated the industry adoption of NCPDP SCRIPT V2017071 standard, effective January 1, 2020.
What is NCPDP SCRIPT 2017071?
SCRIPT is a standard created to facilitate the transfer of prescription data between pharmacies, prescribers, intermediaries, facilities, and payers securely. Within SCRIPT, basic business operations such as the communication of prescription information between prescriber and pharmacy and medication history information between entities can all be handled electronically (computer to computer).
NCPDP’s SCRIPT Version 2017071 includes important functionality and transactions identified by the industry as vital enhancements in improving patient safety, clinical decision-making, and business and administrative efficiencies for all stakeholders – and for the ultimate benefit of patients and healthcare providers.
