Open Payments is a federally run transparency program that will increase public awareness of financial relationships between the health care industry and physicians by collecting and making public any payments or transfers of value between drug and device manufacturers and physicians or teaching hospitals. It's important that you, as the physician, know about this program, what's reported about you, and how you can answer questions from your patients.

2013 Calendar Year Information
CMS Data Explorer - Summary Data published September 30, 2014
Data Errors - Intermingled Data Fix: Manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) submitted intermingled data, such as the wrong state license number or national provider identifier (NPI), for physicians with the same last and first names. This erroneously linked physician data in the Open Payments system. CMS has implemented system fixes to resolve the issue. These records will be published on June 30, 2015.
Disputed Data Update: These disputes were initiated by physicians and teaching hospitals during the review and dispute period held earlier this year. Corrective action taken by industry prior to October 31 will be reflected in the refreshed data publication on or before December 31, 2014. Disputes that remain unresolved as of October 31, 2014 will display as disputed. Any record that was disputed and resolved as of October 31, 2014 will display as undisputed
The goal of the app is to make tracking payment information easier and more convenient, and to improve the accuracy of payment information by tracking payments as they occur throughout the year. The app can be used for personal information collection and storage only; it will not interact with CMS systems.
