We are pleased to announce the return of this highly valued, transparency-focused general session at the Sharing Conference™ this October

Robin Usi

Town Hall Meeting

with CMS

Director, Division of Data & Informatics (DDI),
Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS)
& Members of the CMS Open Payments Team




As state and global transparency initiatives continue to expand, concerns are growing in the industry that managing compliance across multiple reporting entities may compromise compliance to Federal reporting under Open Payments.


To help navigate the Federal reporting requirements, the Sharing Alliance™ is proud to host an open-forum Town Hall Meeting with representatives from CMS. Members of the CMS Open Payments team will be presenting updates at the conference and then we will open the floor for questions, concerns and general feedback from the Industry.


It’s significant that we, as an Industry, have the chance to help inform CMS of the challenges we face in meeting multiple reporting requirements across Federal and State regulations. The Sharing Conference™ is the best place to meet with the members of the CMS Open Payments Team responsible for the overall program, technology, updates, compliance, help desk and other areas critical to the success of the program, and it is your best opportunity to have reporting questions answered directly from CMS representatives.


Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services

In anticipation of the CMS Town Hall Meeting, the Alliance will be reaching out to collect comments, questions and feedback prior to the event. Attendees will also have an opportunity to engage during the session itself. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to have your concerns heard and be among the first to hear about any updates or enhancements planned for Open Payments.
