To help answer the many questions still surrounding the recently released regulations for the Physician Payment Sunshine Act, , the nation’s largest online scheduling system that improves patient outcomes by enhancing the relationship between medical representatives and physicians’ offices, is offering a free webinar entitled: Slated for Thursday April 11 at 2 p.m. EDT, the webinar will be presented by RxVantage Vice President of Sales James Dwyer and Director of Marketing Vanessa Towning, in addition to , Ph.D., R.Ph, a noted pharmaceutical industry and speaker.

The Sunshine Act was intended to bring transparency to physician ownership, financial transactions and relationships with industry businesses and pharmaceutical manufacturers, and to help avoid potential conflicts of interest. With new regulations released in February of this year, the Act covers a range of issues – from reporting to audit requirements. Physicians still determine how to interact with industry reps; only now, the major change is such interactions can be reported and made public.

“Pharmaceutical companies and doctors work together every day to extend and improve the quality of life for their patients,” said Daniel Gilman, co-founder and chief information officer for RxVantage. “The Sunshine Act is intended to ensure transparency in instances when this collaboration involves pharma compensating doctors for their expertise and time. Our webinar will address the evolving legislation and how The Act affects the most important stakeholders, the providers themselves.”
