CMS Sticks With Sept. 30 Launch For Open Payments, But Not All Data Will Be There
This article was originally published in The Gray Sheet
CMS reopened its Open Payments system Aug. 15 to registration, review and dispute activities by physicians and hospitals following a 12-day hiatus due to technical issues. Despite the delay, the agency says it still plans to publically release the data tabulating 2013 device and drug firm payments to doctors and teaching hospitals on Sept. 30. But about one-third of the payment records will not be ready by then due to data inconsistences.
