CGI to Build CMS Open Payments Software Platform

CGI-logo - ExecutiveMosaicCGI Federal has won a contract to build a software platform for the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services that is intended to help physicians access payment data, PharmExec reported Wednesday.

Ben Comer writes the first round of that data will go live before Sept. 30, 2014 and doctors will have 90 days to settle any issues with their dollar accounts before the data’s publication.

Shantanu Agrawal, CMS director of data sharing and partnership group within the center for program integrity, told a conference that the platform will work to publish pharma payments to doctors in compliance with Sunshine Act requirements, according to the report.

Comer writes CGI won three CMS projects in 2011, namely a $93.7 million contract to develop a national health insurance exchange, $8.9 million to build and run the agency’s Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight rate and benefits information system and $55 million for work related to the Provider Enrollment, Chain and Ownership System.
