Survey request: Real-Time Prescription Benefit Inquiry

Friday, December 12, 2014 08:39 AM

The National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP), the organization responsible for creating and maintaining prescription drug electronic standards, is seeking input from the health care industry to help set priorities for the creation of a real-time prescription benefit inquiry (RTPBI) transaction. An RTPBI transaction is intended to provide patient-specific prescription benefit information at the point of care. The purpose of the survey is to determine the scope of content for a future RTPBI transaction. The survey contains use cases which identify specific content areas possible for the RTPBI.

Click here to access the survey. Responses are not limited to NCPDP members. Please feel free to forward the survey to other interested parties. The survey will close at 10 a.m. MST on Thursday, Dec. 18, 2014.

We encourage you to participate in this survey. Strong provider participation will ensure that your need for accurate, patient-specific prescription benefit information at the point of prescribing is heard.
