AMA Statement on Final Physician Payment Sunshine Act Rule

For immediate release:
Feb. 1, 2013

Statement attributable to:
Jeremy A. Lazarus, MD
President, American Medical Association

"The AMA will carefully review the new Physician Payment Sunshine Act rule," said AMA President Jeremy Lazarus, MD. "Physicians’ relationships with the pharmaceutical industry should be transparent and focused on benefits to patients. Our feedback during this rulemaking process was aimed at ensuring the new registry will provide a meaningful picture of physician-industry interactions and give physicians an easy way to correct any inaccuracies. As the rule is implemented, we will work to make sure physicians have up-to-date information about the new reporting process."
