Utilizing NABP's existing financial resources, the Association will cover the annual participation fees for all participating states for at least five years, and it is the Association's goal that states will never have to pay annual participation fees to participate in NABP InterConnect. NABP will work to offset costs associated with amendments to existing PMP software, which are needed to interface with the NABP InterConnect. In addition, NABP will cover all costs associated with the development and ongoing operation of the program. The NABP Foundation will also make available unrestricted educational grants available for those states needing additional assistance in enhancing their PMPs for this purpose. Those interested in obtaining more information on NABP InterConnect, should contact NABP Government Affairs staff at email@example.com.
Other NABP health and safety programs include the VIPPS® (Verified Internet Pharmacy Practice Sites) accreditation program, the Not Recommended list of online drug distributors, and the AWARxE consumer protection program. Recently, NABP commissioned task forces to address patient health and safety issues including the Controlled Substances Act, PMP program standards, electronic prescribing, prescription labels, and medication collection programs.
NABP is the independent, international, and impartial Association that assists its member boards and jurisdictions in developing, implementing, and enforcing uniform standards for the purpose of protecting the public health.
