When Congress passed the health care reform legislation in 2010, it included the Physician Payments Sunshine Act, which requires biopharmaceutical manufacturers to report (and make public) annual payments made to physicians. Under this law, payments or “transfers of value” under $10 would not be reportable if the aggregate spend for the calendar year was less than $100. Once that threshold is reached, all payments are reportable. Many companies have put forth the effort to set up systems that allow them to begin posting payment information to their websites well before the federal mandated timeframes. Others are working diligently to get systems in place to allow them to meet the Jan. 1, 2012, compliance date. This has been no small feat for these companies, as current company systems are not organized around the necessity to report information this way.
