WPC Celebrates World Standards Day, October 14, 2012


WPC is proud to be part of the ongoing international effort to enhance, distribute, and implement data standards in business and government. As we have seen in our 35 years of work in electronic data interchange for multiple industries including healthcare, data standards do increase efficiency, improve quality, and reduce waste.

The heroes of the standardization movement are the thousands of volunteers in standards development organizations like ASC X12, the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP), the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), and the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) who are passionate about getting it right and making their standards better and better. We’d like to take the opportunity to recognize them today on World Standards Day.
