Review your CMS data Before it Becomes Available to the Public – You Have Until May 20

THIS ANNOUNCEMENT BROUGHT TO YOU COURTESY OF DIGITAL HEALTH SPACE.


Review Your Data Before it Becomes Available to the Public – You Have Until May 20

On June 30, 2015, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will publish additional data about financial interactions between drug and medical device makers and physicians and teaching hospitals 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.
You are receiving this message because this email address is associated with a physician or teaching hospital who has payments or other transfers of value reported on them in the Open Payments system. These data records are available for your voluntary review, and can be disputed if needed. However, please know that regardless of your review, the data will be publicly posted on June 30, 2015. We encourage you to review this information and initiate any disputes (if needed) by the May 20, 2015 deadline.
Registration in the Open Payments system is required to view the information before it is made public, and dispute anything inaccurate or incomplete. 
ACTION
  1. Register in CMS’ Enterprise Portal (Enterprise Identification Management system – EIDM) to receive your CMS User ID. Use the EIDM Registration Quick Reference Guide to help you through this process.
  2. Register in the Open Payments system using your CMS User ID to review your payment records. Refer to the Physician Registration Quick Reference Guide or Teaching Hospital Registration Quick Reference Guide for assistance.
