Have you wondered how much your physician is paid by the drug and medical device companies? In the US, the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services has created a powerful program called Open Payments.
This program is a national disclosure program that promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system by giving public access to the financial relationships between applicable manufacturers and group purchasing organizations (GPOs) and health care providers (physicians and teaching hospitals).
If you live in the US, we invite you to see learn more about the Open Payments Search Tool and to use its advanced search feature. A knowledgeable patient lives longer!
