Poll: Docs in dark about Sunshine

Share this article:

An MMIS survey of 1,000 physicians, released days after issuance of the final Sunshine rule, showed that over half didn't know that the Sunshine Act requires companies to report on expenditures annually, and that such information would be made public.

Sixty-three percent were “deeply concerned” that such records will be viewable; 21% said they would sever ties with a manufacturer who reported inaccurate information about payments or transfers of value if disclosed to the public.

MMIS said results show a 5% rise in unfamiliarity with the law's provisions by doctors, calling the lack of understanding “increasingly problematic.”
