PD-Rx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (PDRX.PK) Completes Software Development Upgrade To NCPDP 5.1

10/19/2005 5:09:47 PM

OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- PD-Rx Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (OTC Pink Sheets: PDRX), a publicly held corporation, today announced that it has completed the software development requirements of the "National Council for Prescription Drug Programs" to conform to the new standards of the NCPDP 5.1 format.

A proprietary software program called "PD-Rx Net" is now available in a version that offers the newest guidelines setup by the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs for the adjudication and transmission of prescription claims. Shawn Stephens, MIS Director, stated, "The NCPDP 5.1 format is an evolutionary step in advanced programming and standardization necessary to conform with today's computer technology and global interfacing. The new format will help simplify the transaction speed throughout the healthcare industry."

With the implementation of the new format in the PD-Rx Net program, PD-Rx will be able to operate in additional markets, as the new design is intended to bring all electronic pharmacy claim programs and processors to a single format of data transmission. The previous versions defined three separate formats, necessary to process different types of medication billing claims. As all processors and software developers like PD-Rx conform to a single set of guidelines, the reimbursement rate and transmission fees should be simplified in the years to come.
