The Sunshine Act

 Sunshine Act Notice

Our doctors may have financial relationships with health care manufacturing companies and may receive compensation for research activities, speaking engagements, training, or in the form of meals or reimbursement for travel.  The Open Payments database is designed to:

  • Encourage transparency about these financial ties
  • Provide information on the nature and extent of the relationships
  • Help to identify relationships that can both lead to the development of beneficial new technologies and wasteful healthcare spending
  • Help to prevent inappropriate influence on research, education and clinical decision making

 

The Open Payment database can be accessed at http://www.cms.gov/openpayments/.  

 

Oregon Heart Center works to ensure compliance with all laws intended to provide patients with relevant and complete information about their medical services. If you have any questions regarding the information in the Open Payment database, please contact our office or consult  your healthcare provider.
