CMS Open Payments User Guide Released

The Open Payments User Guide for Applicable Manufacturers and Applicable Group Purchasing Organizations (GPOs) has been released by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS).  CMS announced the release of this User Guide during a recent teleconference with pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device manufacturers.  According to CMS, the User Guide “is designed to simplify the complexities surrounding the collection and reporting of data to comply with Open Payments requirements. Applicable manufacturers and GPOs can use this resource as a go-to guidebook for understanding how to apply the regulations to real scenarios.”  User Guides for teaching hospitals and physicians also are expected to be released by CMS.
