release notes at:

The Mirth Project resonates with Health Information Exchanges (HIE), EHR and PHR vendors, laboratories, hospitals, and HIT system integrators. NCPDP transaction support is a natural extension for Mirth to fast-track the pharmacy industry with low-cost interoperability solutions. The National Council for Prescription Drug Programs thought that NCPDP transaction support in Mirth is a great idea:

"Mirth is an open source, standards-based Health IT messaging system that supports NCPDP, X12N, EDI, and HL7 transactions and, as a result, aligns well with the messaging infrastructure advocated by the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs," said Lee Ann Stember, President of the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs Organization. "Being an OSS HIT interface engine solution, Mirth lowers cost barriers, fosters the NCPDP community, and could facilitate common infrastructures for pharmacy claims, Medication Therapy Management (MTM), and automated Prior Authorization (PA) systems, to name a few."
