On September 12, 2012, the United States Senate Special Committee on Aging held a Roundtable Meeting at 2:30 PM ET on CapitolHill to discuss implementation of the Physician Payments Sunshine Act. This meeting will include 10 presentations from various stakeholders to allow the members of the Senate Aging Committee to gain insight on the issues and technical challenges facing the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). Specifically how transparency data can be effectively collected, posted, and contextually explained to the public and shared with physicians prior to reporting to the public are some of the issues expected to be discussed during the Roundtable.

Together Timothy Robinson, MMIS General Counsel and President of the Regulatory Law Group, PLLC. and Michaeline Daboul, President & CEO of MMIS, Inc., composed a written response to the United States Senate SpecialCommittee on Aging. The response highlights multiple surveys conducted between MMIS, and the Regulatory Law Group in conjunction with the American Medical Association in order to understand the attitudes, awareness, and concerns of physicians as they relate to the Physician Payment Sunshine Act. Results prove the lack of awareness among physicians regarding this Act and their expressed concerns. Timothy Robinson, MMIS General Counsel and President of the Regulatory Law Group, PLLC. will be representing MMIS, Inc. at the Roundtable event in Washington DC this afternoon.
