Burned by the Sunshine Act

Meet retired electrophysiologist David Mann, MD, not to be confused with all the other doctors with the same name. Except unfortunately for him, he was, and in the one of the thorniest places imaginable—the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services’ Open Payments System.

He shares his experience discovering his data was intertwined with another David Mann (different middle name, different NPI number) in a blog post on EP Studios. CMS has shut down the database temporarily.
