PORTSMOUTH, NH May 22, 2012 — Michaeline Daboul, President and CEO of MMIS, Inc., will be presenting survey results on physician awareness and attitudes of the Physician Payment Sunshine Act at the ExL Pharma 3rd Reporting Aggregate Spend & Sunshine Act Compliance Conference to be held June 7-8, 2012, in Philadelphia, PA.
The conference focuses on concrete strategies for managing the compliance burden and minimizing risk of reporting aggregate spend under the Sunshine Act.
Ms. Daboul's presentation "The Health Care Transparency Ecosystem: Understanding Physician Attitudes and Opinions on Notification and Dispute Resolution" will include discussion on the results of a survey commissioned by MMIS, Inc., providers of MediSpend®, an aggregate spend tracking and reporting solution. This 10-minute online survey was sent out to 50,000 specialists and primary care physicians and showed that 47% of respondents were unaware of the Sunshine Act.
"Large to mid-size life science companies have continued to source and implement aggregate spend tracking and reporting systems despite the new January 1, 2013 data collection date that CMS has requested." said Michaeline Daboul. "But the problem doesn't end once you have implemented a tracking and reporting system. In this new age of transparency, the most pressing problem that industry will need to address is how they will engage their customers proactively to preserve these critical relationships."
Discussion points and analysis during her presentation will also include a review of CMS Proposed Rules as they relate to physician notification and dispute resolution; discussion of physician awareness and attitudes related to the notification and dispute resolution process; educating physicians in this new age of transparency; and an overview of a case study and pilot program.
