PharmaShine provides hospital, medical school, and heath system compliance officers with an easy to use, low-cost system for managing the increasing amounts of publicly available data on pharmaceutical and medical device industry payments to physicians and other healthcare professionals.
Over the past couple of years there has been increasing pressure on medical schools, hospitals, and other healthcare organizations to develop reliable solutions for tracking, cross-checking, managing, and disclosing data on industry payments to physicians. The passage of the Physician Payment Sunshine provisions of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act as well as new regulations proposed by the NIH and AAMC have revealed the potential scope of the data management challenges that provider organizations face in this area.
PharmaShine is available as a resource to help you meet these challenges without the investment of scarce internal time and resources, and without the expense and delay caused by engaging external consultants to develop a custom software solution.
The utility of company disclosed payment data to healthcare organizations is clearly outlined the following quote from a recent article authored by researchers at Columbia University's Institute on Medicine as a Profession:
Using PharmaShine, you can quickly and easily search, sort, and aggregate industry payments to physicians and other healthcare professionals for administrative, compliance, or research purposes. Using PharmaShine’s alert capabilities, you will be notified whenever a new payment to professionals in your organization is disclosed by industry or government sources.
As new payment data is publicly released by Pharmaceutical and Medical Device companies, PharmaShine immediately captures this information and incorporates it into its online database. As PharmaShine’s database grows, it becomes better able to recognize duplicate and erroneous source data. By applying similar techniques to those used by applications that filter email spam and merge and de-dupe direct mail address lists, PharmaShine has built an error- detection system into its import process that minimizes the likelihood of payments being mis- associated or lost. The result is a large, high-quality set of valuable data that is both optimized for real-time analytics and traceable back to the original source data
