NCPDP WG14/WG10 Standardized Medication Profile Task Group completed an analysis of data fields and transactions available in the current NCPDP SCRIPT and Specialized standards (as defined by the IMPACT Act) and documented existing data fields that meet patient and medication profile attributes and specific gaps.

In September 2019, an HL7 Standardized Medication Profile Project Scope Statement was initiated.
