CMS Open Payments Database

On June 30, 2019, the federal government published the latest version of the CMS Open Payments database. This database includes any payment to physicians in excess of $10.00 for consulting, honoraria, or almost any other purpose. Do you know which of your physicians have accepted pharmaceutical company payments? 

The Open Payments database has brought significant attention to physician-healthcare industry relationships. C-Level executives should be prepared to answer questions about these payments from the local media, curious patients, and auditors.
