Invest in the movement to improve health through the use of proven technology

Health information technology (HIT) has the potential to make healthcare for you and your family safer and more effective. It transforms the way your care providers communicate with one another and with you to manage health.

Your gift to the NCPDP Foundation will support research and pilot projects to drive the proper use of standards in HIT. Standards enable your health information to be shared securely, accurately and in a timely manner with you and your care providers to make better informed health decisions.

Your gift will also support scholarships that help the next generation of pharmacists become proficient in the use of HIT. As pharmacists assume a greater role in patient care, HIT is a powerful tool in helping patients get the right medications at the right time, manage multiple therapies, and prevent underdosing and overdosing that can lead to health risks.

Donate today to the NCPDP Foundation! The amount of your gift will be doubled through a matching funds commitment from the Board of Trustees of NCPDP.

The NCPDP Foundation is the only Foundation with an exclusive focus on advancing the use of standards-based information technology for better healthcare.


Better healthcare through standards-based health information technology for the common good.


Support programs, projects and people that drive quality healthcare through the use of standards-based HIT to improve outcomes.
