Sunshine Act Reporting – Clarification for Clinical Research
This webinar will summarize the Sunshine Act or Open Payments Program requirements and provide practical solutions to most common situations that are prevalent and necessary between sponsors and investigators.
The Sunshine Act or Open Payments Program requires manufacturers of drugs, medical devices, and biologics that participate in U.S. federal health care programs to report certain clinical investigator payments and items of value given to physicians and teaching hospitals. This Act was part of a healthcare reform bill adopted in March 2010. It came about due to requests for increased transparency about the financial relationships between physicians and industry.
Why Should You Attend :
The Sunshine Act exposes the physicians and sponsors to new clinical trial reporting requirements and detail non-compliance to which would lead to hefty fines. Templates for reporting format, exemptions to reporting requirements, and timelines for compliance and enforcement will be discussed.
Areas Covered in the Session :
Life science companies face the challenge of implementing the detailed reporting required by the Act as healthcare providers determine how to use their own data to anticipate public reporting of payments by life science companies to physicians and teaching hospitals.
This webinar will examine the implications of the Sunshine Act for healthcare providers and life science companies, and discuss practical steps they can take to implement the Act and prepare for transparency.
