NCPDP leaders completed a successful EDvocacy Tour this week. Even in the midst of the ongoing healthcare debate, opioid abuse remains a top priority for both Congress and the Administration. The last four years of EDvocacy combined with the nation’s ever-increasing number of opioid related deaths is having an impact.
Both Congressional leaders and the Administration are telling us that they are ready to act now to address the problem.
Our team continued to discuss NCPDP’s PDMP Solution and reports that our efforts are gaining traction. The team participated in 15 meetings during the two-day tour, meeting with Congressional leaders, Congressional committees, Administration and stakeholder groups.
The NCPDP team included members of our Board, Strategic Planning Committee, executive staff and our industry/government relations team.
