MU2 prescription validator update on Feb 15
The MU2 new prescription validator has been updated based on industry input.
 - The fifth test case, for Capoten, has been changed to reflect the generic version of that medication, because the branded product is no longer commercially available.
 - A missing prescriber Clinic Name no longer causes an error to be returned. However, support for that information is still recommended by the industry.

The updated validator is available here.
Feel free to contact me if you have questions or find an issue.

Meaningful Use Stage 2 prescription validator (beta)
I'm working with NIST and NCPDP to prepare for Meaningful Use Stage 2 testing. NIST's SCRIPT 10.6 New Prescription validator is available for review here.
Give it a try and contact me if you have questions or find an issue.
