Sunshine Act Website Deadline is Sept. 10

[MMA News Now, Sept. 4, 2014] Physicians have until Sept. 10 to review and dispute data submitted by manufacturers and group purchasing organizations prior to public posting of the data on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ (CMS) Open Payments website.

Open Payments (formerly known as the Physicians Sunshine Act) is a national disclosure program that promotes transparency by publishing the financial relationships between the medical industry and, physicians and hospitals on a publicly accessible website.  

The public website, which debuts Sept. 30, will be organized and designed to increase access to and knowledge about these relationships and to provide information to enable consumers to make informed decisions.

Along with the CMS site, you can find information on the program via the AMA website.

I've been trying to log in and check my information for three days, but the website has been down. I hope they extend the deadline because of this.
