It appears that we in the USA are not the only ones grappling with core-shaking healthcare changes. Sweeping measures are quickly reshaping the way we look at data, technology, privacy and relationships in healthcare.

Boston Scientific handles Sunshine Act reporting in the cloud

MTC created a tracking and workflow application for Boston Scientific to comply with state and Federal legislative requirements

January 14, 2013

To comply with Sunshine Act requirements, MTC created a web-based system for Boston Scientific to manage the entire reporting and payment process to physicians for speaking engagements, lunches, proctorships and preceptorships.

The Sunshine Act states that any drug, device, or medical supply manufacturer operating in the United States must report any payment or benefit given to a physician. It changes significantly how drug companies and CROs think about payments to medical professionals. Payments under $10 are excluded, but only if the total spent on that HCP is less than $100 annually.

Companies will need to begin recording this information in early 2013.
