The Physician Payments Sunshine Act is part of the Affordable Care Act. It was established as a national disclosure program requiring that data on payments and gifts be made publicly available on a searchable federal database. As an example, the act covers a pharmaceutical or medical device company providing a physician or a teaching hospital with stocks, research payments, gifts, speaking fees, royalties, meals, and other payments. Since the Open Payments Program’s inception, the resulting data has triggered widespread media attention, both nationally and locally, while also drawing attention to organizational conflict of interest (COI) policies.

Breakfast will be provided; registration and breakfast begin at 8:30 a.m.
