The Physicians Payment Sunshine initiative is a growing body of Federal and State legislations that collectively addresses all or some of the following goals: (a) Provide transparency with regard to who, in the life sciences industry, is contributing what benefits to which physician; (b) Mandate statutory reports at least once a year; and, (c) Limit spend per physician. “Aggregate Spend” is the total, collective, cumulative amount spent by healthcare manufacturers (pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device organizations) on individual Healthcare Professionals and Organizations (HCP/O) through payments, gifts, honoraria, travel and other means. The Federal Bill passed in March 2010 as a provision under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care (PPAC) Act, and several States — including, but not limited to, California, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Maine, District of Columbia, West Virginia, Vermont and Nevada — have already passed their versions of the Sunshine Law. The Federal Law goes into effect from January 1, 2012, with the earliest reports (covering Jan-Dec 2012) mandated on or before March 31, 2013. The penalties range from $10,000 to $100,000 for each violation, and can go up to $1 million. This regulatory compliance requirement is especially challenging because of the (a) DATA DISCREPANCIES across diverse sources of record; (b) STATE TO STATE VARIATIONS of the law; and, (c) the sheer VOLUME OF DATA that must be aggregated, cleansed, processed and filed.
