The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) announced today that it had released an improved Open Payments website. The website has been enhanced with a homepage tool for searching by doctor name, a “snapshot” of Open Payment data, and additional sections to explore and download data.
Additionally, CMS updated the Open Payments dataset previously published on June 30, 2015. This updated Open Payments dataset reflects changes made to records, changes to delays in publication flags, changes to disputed records, and records that were deleted since original publication. These changes were submitted by applicable manufacturers and applicable group purchasing organizations (GPOs) to CMS. This data should be carefully reviewed by all covered recipients.
