Prescription Drug Monitoring Program - Epic

Epic is responsible for developing and implementing interfaces according to national standards like HL7 and NCPDP. Their customers have thousands of interface instances live in production transmitting billions of messages per year. The goal is to conduct a successful proof of concept between Epic (EHR) and one or more PDMPs using NCPDP 10.6 test messages. The other goal is to provide feedback to the group so that an easy to implement national standard can be established for integrating EHRs and PDMPs. For this initial pilot Epic is looking to test the standard NCPDP 10.6 RxHistoryRequest/RxHistoryResponse message types with one or more PDMPs. Epic has customers nationwide so they are particularly interested in establishing a single standard that all EHR, PDMP, and pharmacy vendors would use. Epic completed the NCPDP - PDMP RTM.
