According to CMS, on June 30, 2015, will make more information about the financial interactions between drug and medical device makers and physicians and teaching hospitals available to the public on its Open Payments website.
"Open Payments is a national effort that promotes transparency by making information reported by applicable manufacturers available on the website annually. Before the data is made public, CMS provides physicians and teaching hospitals the opportunity to register and review information submitted about them by applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations; if they disagree with what has been reported, physicians and teaching may initiate data disputes."
