Complexity

Open Payments, which is managed by the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), is a national disclosure program created by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) that promotes transparency and accountability by helping consumers understand the financial relationships between pharmaceutical and medical device industries and physicians and teaching hospitals. These financial relationships may include consulting fees, research grants, travel reimbursements, and payments made from the industry to medical practitioners.

This is a supplementary file that displays all of the physicians and principal investigators indicated as covered recipients of payments for records published by Open Payments. Each record includes the physician’s or principal investigator’s demographic information, specialties, and license state, as well as the Open Payments’ unique identification number (Physician Profile ID) for each physician and principal investigator. The Physician Profile ID can be used to search other datasets to find payments
made to or associated with that specific physician as well as to link physician records across program years.

The physician information included in this dataset is derived from the National Plan and Provider Enumeration System (NPPES) and supplemented by information in the Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System (PECOS).
