NCPDP and MedImpact Partner to Develop API for Real-time Access to Pharmacy Database Products

NCPDP and MedImpact Partner to Develop API for Real-time Access to Pharmacy Database Products

MedImpact recently partnered with NCPDP, the problem-solving forum for healthcare and ANSI-accredited standards development organization, to create an application program interface (API) to create and support real-time access to non-patient pharmacy data.

MedImpact and NCPDP collaborated to streamline efficiencies in collecting and accessing pharmacy data and documents to provide the healthcare industry the tools and technology needed to help simplify business and reduce expenses.

"This development project with MedImpact demonstrates our commitment to giving the healthcare industry the tools it needs to simplify and improve the way they do business,” said NCPDP President and CEO, Lee Ann Stember. “It is the next step in the evolution of our product suite to make it easier for our subscribers to access the most up-to-date, reliable pharmacy and credentialing data.”

The API simplifies and improves access to the most up-to-date, reliable pharmacy and credentialing data in NCPDP’s pharmacy database products, including resQ™, an industry pharmacy credentialing resource, and dataQ®, a robust database of information on more than 80,000 pharmacies.

MedImpact is developing an industry first Pharmacy Portal that will utilize NCPDP's resQ™ file in real time, reducing the data collection burden to help MedImpact and its network pharmacies streamline the current process and significantly reduce time and costs in managing pharmacy data. The MedImpact Pharmacy Portal will serve as a single secure tool for pharmacies to transparently manage interactions with MedImpact.
