ClinPay Tracks NPI Numbers for the Sunshine Act and Facilitates Site Invoicing to Comply with Sarbanes-Oxley
We crafted our clinical trial management solutions to meet direct reporting needs in accordance with Sunshine Act requirements. We support mandated site invoicing, which satisfies several Sarbanes-Oxley related compliance concerns.
ClinPay maintains NPI numbers for both the principal investigator (PI) and the health care provider (HCP) that is receiving payment. This is critical as the proposed guidelines for reporting require payments made to an HCP (teaching hospitals) be reported as "direct" and payments associated with the PI also be reported as "indirect" as they are associated with the payment; however, they are not the direct recipient of the payment.
Additionally, PIs can change during the course of a study and ClinPay allows PIs, along with other team members, to be maintained with a start and stop date. The system will adjust the transactions to be associated with the applicable PI.
Our ClinPay solution has the ability to track NPI numbers by PI, HCP, or institution and can be configured to meet varying needs.
