    About the Webinar

    The Open Payments team from CPI will provide an overview of the Open Payments program, which promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system nationally. Open Payments houses a publicly accessible database of payments that reporting entities, including drug and medical device companies, make to covered recipients like physicians, NPs, PAs and other health care providers.

    In this webinar, you will learn about the program and how it operates, see highlights of the data and become familiar with your role as a covered recipient. Following the presentation, the team will field questions from participants.

    If you are not able to attend the webinar on September 29, a recorded version of this webinar will be available on-demand in the AANP CE Center until June 30, 2023.
