Physician Payments Disclosure & Aggregate SpendOctober 17 - 18, 2011The Millennium U.N. Plaza, New York, NY

Industry/physician relationships are under a microscope in an era of heightened transparency. Gain advanced strategies to put in place immediately to meet the challenge of increasingly stringent state and federal disclosure requirements.

Complying with complicated and evolving federal and state spend disclosure laws demands a massive amount of effort and resources, and companies must be compliant when doing business throughout the U.S. or else face severe monetary penalties and loss of crucial market share. Furthermore, with the 2013 federal submission deadline for 2012 spend swiftly approaching, time is a luxury most companies cannot afford to waste. ACIs Third Annual Forum on Physician Payments Disclosure and Aggregate Spend will save you time and money as our faculty of drug and device manufacturers on the front lines, government enforcers, and policy advisers help you formulate real-world, cost-effective strategies to streamline your systems and capture and report accurate and compliant spend data.

With a focus on improving existing reporting policies and data capture methods in the face of the most stringent requirements yet, attendees at all phases of implementation will leave this conference with practical tips and tried and true solutions to enhance existing compliance systems and combat increasingly complex reporting requirements. For device manufacturers, the post-conference Device Manufacturers Working Group Session: Building a Comprehensive Aggregate Spend System provides an intimate and collegial environment for attendees to discuss the unique logistical and practical issues facing the industry when reporting and disclosing payments to physicians for the ultimate benchmarking experience with peers facing the same challenges.
