The longest running and most highly acclaimed transparency meeting takes place August 18-20 in Washington, DC this year. CBI's Transparency & Aggregate Spend Forum provides an amazing opportunity to hear from industry experts and interact with other compliance and agg spend personnel about lessons learned from 2013 reporting, and what to anticipate going forward. The conference features live audience polling for benchmarking comparisons, in-depth workshops, concurrent tracks, interactive presentations, panels, case studies and peer-to-peer working groups.
The Conference will cover the following important topics:
- Learn about the impact of Open Payments reporting on the relationships between industry and physicians
- Increase the accuracy and speed of recording a transfer-of-value at the point of transfer
- Consider the best ways to prepare for public disclosure
- Discover pre-reporting and dispute resolution strategies
- Hear a summary of how industry has responded to initial reporting
- Create an internal process for sharing ownership and accountability for reporting compliance
- Implement processes and integrate systems to ensure data accuracy and verification
- Work with third-party vendors to improve data and reporting processes
- Validate and verify your aggregate spend programs and transparency process
The Transparency and Aggregate Spend Forum provides three tracks on Monday that all touch on very timely issues: tracking clinical research spend, international data privacy considerations, and requirements for global reporting. Thomas Sullivan, editor of Policy and Medicine will be leading the workshop entitled "How to Identify, Track, and Report Clinical Spending" as well as an interactive working group presentation on "Open Payments Reporting on Education and Indirect Payments" on Wednesday.
We highly recommend that you register for this conference--it is one of the most comprehensive forums for the Sunshine Act to happen all year.
