The NCPDP Foundation is the only foundation with an exclusive focus on advancing the use of standards-based information technology for better healthcare. Its newly launched 1977 Society recognizes donors who support the Vision and Purpose of the NCPDP Foundation by providing monetary donations totaling $1,977 or more within a calendar year. Donations can be made through a one-time donation or monthly or quarterly donations.
The contributions are unrestricted dollars, allowing the NCPDP Foundation to use the funds at its discretion to support grants, proof-of-concept and other research projects, and operational expenses that are approved by the NCPDP Foundation Board.
Stember explained, "The 1977 Society is a wonderful way to acknowledge our roots. We named the program the '1977 Society' in recognition of the year of NCPDP's incorporation. I am honored to make the first formal donation."
To commence this significant milestone in the longevity of the NCPDP Foundation, Mindy D. Smith, BSPharm, R.Ph., MHA, Chair of the Foundation, presented Stember with a label pin to honor her as the inaugural member of the 1977 Society.
