PORTSMOUTH, NH April 13, 2012 MMIS, Inc. presented the MediSpend® Notification Center and the Physicians Professional Network®, a leading physician payments disclosure and aggregate spend reporting system, at CBI’s 3rd Annual West Coast Forum on Sunshine, State Laws and Aggregate Spend in San Diego, California April 16-17.
MediSpend (medispend0.wpengine.com/) is the first secure end-to-end software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution designed specifically to help pharmaceutical and medical device companies track and report HCP and HCO spend while simultaneously managing physician relationships.
The MediSpend® Notification Center provides companies a web-based direct access point to “pre-report” spend data directly to HCPs and creates an efficient and compliant platform to communicate with HCPs to manage dispute resolutions and reporting.
Michaeline Daboul, CEO and President of MMIS Inc., is an industry expert on what pharmaceutical and medical device companies and physicians need to do now in order to prepare for federal implementation of the Sunshine Act. Ms. Daboul has been interviewed by Inside CMS, Healthcare Finance News, Mass Device and Healthcare Review North East Network on the compliance challenges and the need for a dispute resolution process. “Pharmaceutical and medical device companies will have to figure out how to proactively share the financial transaction data with physicians and teaching hospitals before the data is presented to public.” said Michaeline Daboul, President and CEO of MMIS. “Physician education, proactive notification, and dispute resolution should be top of mind for every compliance officer and all those who have a vested interest in maintaining a positive relationship with their customer.” she added. The CBI forum comes right on the heels of MMIS’ presentation of a study conducted in conjunction with The Regulatory Law Group, PLLC regarding physician aggregate spend awareness at the National Disclosure Summit Conference in Washington, DC on March 28th. 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.
