Webinar: Open Payments Retrospect and Looking Forward


On October 13, 2016, qordata will be hosting a webinar, “Retrospect and Looking Forward: A Review of Two Full Years of Open Payments Data and Media Coverage, The Indications for the Future.”

With three years of published public data available through CMS submissions in Open Payments, the media is working hard at mining transparency data to bring health care fraud cases to the enforcement authorities’ attention. As time passes by, the government is also enhancing the ways in which it prosecutes, arrests and penalizes those engaged in fraud. With the media working hard to bring these cases to light, pharma companies need to work more efficiently in terms of documenting their spend data.

Presenting the webinar will be our very own Thomas Sullivan, along with Zafar Ahmed of qordata. The webinar will go through the 2014-2015 Open Payments data, discuss the media on Open Payments during the week of the 2015 release, evaluate prosecutions using Open Payments, deliberate the CMS questions on Open Payments, assess Congressional actions on Open Payments, and review global ag spend and media.

In this webinar, Thomas Sullivan will give a detailed review of the 2014-2015 Open Payments Data, evaluate persecutions and provide an in-depth assessment of the congressional actions on Open Payments.  He will further provide information about the ways in which Open Payments data and other tied in spend reports are being evaluated by the media in hopes of finding data anomalies.

Chief Compliance Officers, Directors of Compliance, Managers of Compliance, and any other interested parties are encouraged to attend and register here.
