Sunshine Act Compliance Simplified for Pharmaceutical Drug Manufacturers with New Medical ePrint Solution from Reprints Desk
Date:5/14/2013

LOS ANGELES, May 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reprints Desk, a wholly owned subsidiary of Research Solutions (OTCBB: RSSS), announced today the launch of a new compliance software-as-a-service (SaaS) solution for medical marketers. The solution simplifies Sunshine Act compliance related to the use of medical ePrints for sales, marketing and medical affairs.

Reprints Desk's Sunshine ePrints solution records the delivery of each ePrint to the physician across publishers with a customizable ePrint registration page. Data collection includes HCP name, state and license number and unit-level ePrint cost. The solution is an extension of Reprints Desk's reprint services including online ordering, publisher-licensing services, multichannel/multiplatform deployment including iPads and healthcare professional (HCP) portals.

The Physician Payment Sunshine Act, commonly referred to as the "Sunshine Act," is regulation designed to provide transparency in the relationship between physicians and manufacturers of drugs, devices, or medical supplies for which payment is made under Medicare, Medicaid, or State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP). Beginning August 1, 2013 onwards, all travel, gifts, meals, medical reprints and ePrints, honoraria and other items above $10 in value must be reported along with their itemized dates, values and the nature of each benefit. If total payments to a physician exceed $100 in a year, then all benefits to that physician must be reported. Companies out of compliance can be fined anywhere from $10,000 to $1,000,000.

"Pharmaceutical companies are scrambling to ensure that their use of scientific literature as an educational tool is fully compliant once the Sunshine Act reporting requirements take effect this summer," said Scott Ahlberg , Head of Global Services at Reprints Desk. "While paper reprints are still a valuable leave behind during an HCP detail or at professional meetings, transitioning to ePrints can make it easier to comply with new industry regulations and Reprints Desk is the company that can help."

Scholarly, peer-reviewed journal articles are important educational tools for healthcare professionals, helping them to understand new therapies and stay current on changing standards of care.  Reprints Desk improves how journal articles and clinical reprints are accessed, procured, and legally used in evidence-based promotions and scientific, technical, and medical (STM) research. In June 2012, Reprints Desk launched the content-enriched website www.hcpengage.com, featuring video interviews with healthcare professionals and industry thought leaders on topics such as regulatory compliance, sales rep interactions, scientific literature usage, mobile usage and more.
