Objectives Independent community pharmacies account for approximately one-third of all outpatient pharmacy locations in the U.S. but are underrepresented at the technical work group meetings of the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs. It is not uncommon that at a meeting with several hundred payers health plans and PBMs, providers pharmacy companies, physicians, drug manufacturers, and general interest participants vendors, associations, government five or fewer independent pharmacy owners are present. Considering this extreme imbalance and the barriers to participation, ensuring that the voice of this constituency is heard requires ongoing administrative and financial support of grantees. Continued support for this unique grant directly aligns with the Community Pharmacy Foundations mission to encourage new capabilities and continuous improvements in the delivery of patient care. In 2017, it is anticipated an updated Telecommunication Standard will be released, eventually implemented under HIPAA. The core group of grantees will play a significant role in shaping this updated version and ensuring that any updates incorporated advance the role of pharmacists as providers. The outcome of their presence and more importantly, having the ability to vote as an NCPDP member, will affect the future of pharmacy practice for the industry as a whole.
