Under the many challenges of COVID-19, it has been immensely more difficult for the Life Sciences industry to engage with, educate, and provide samples to healthcare providers (HCPs) regarding their products. Sales Representatives have been grounded as the procedures for in-office visits have become unclear, limiting their ability to reach practitioners effectively.
In an effort to outline the current measures in place, MedPro’s Data Stewardship team is polling HCP offices in all 50 states to acquire firsthand information regarding the rules of engagement for sales representatives for in-office visits during the crisis.
MedPro can partner with your Sales Operations, Compliance, and Legal teams to acquire the most relevant answers regarding in-office engagements for top sales reps and priority HCPs, gaining a valuable competitive edge. Gain answers to specific questions such as, ‘Are there any specialty limitations for visits?,’ ‘What is the current face mask and protective gear policy?,’ ‘Is there a mandatory temperature reading for visits?,’ and more.
Contact us today to work with our data stewardship team to develop specific questions, call scripts, and target lists to ensure your sales representatives can engage with practitioners effectively and safely.

With 2019 reporting to CMS Open Payments (Sunshine Act) now complete, it’s a great time to reflect on how you can improve your current reporting processes for next year. The March 31, 2020 reports presented a number of unique reporting challenges, with CMS rolling out new validation requirements for zip codes, drug names, and National Drug Codes (NDCs).
Additionally, CMS tightened its state licensing data validation. If the state license number submitted had expired prior to the start of the Open Payments program on August 1, 2013, the associated record was rejected. Many internal transparency teams and other Aggregate Spend vendors faced difficulties adapting to these new requirements and filling the gaps in their data needed to comply.
We updated Porzio AggregateSpendID®, our industry-leading end-to-end Aggregate Spend tracking and reporting solution, to identify invalid zip codes so that updates could be made prior to their submission to CMS. We additionally used CMS’ Drug Name and National Drug Code Reference Data as the source for reported drug names to assure alignment with the validation source.
Our Aggregate Spend solution is powered by MedProID®, the Life Sciences industry’s most comprehensive healthcare practitioner (HCP) and healthcare organization (HCO) record database, which includes 20+ years of historical license data. By leveraging this data, our team was able to quickly identify and adapt to new Federal requirements on state licensure expiration and validation across millions of practitioners.
If your internal team or your current transparency vendor faced difficulties this year with the challenges above, MedPro Systems is here to help.
Contact us today to discuss how we can help you with next year’s Open Payments reporting, as well as the state and local reporting deadline approaching on July 1, 2020.

As part of the many challenges of COVID-19, sending pharmaceutical sales representatives direct to healthcare practitioners (HCPs) or healthcare organizations (HCOs) is no longer an option. The Life Sciences industry as a whole is switching its focus to remote engagements with HCPs and Direct to Practitioner (DTP) sampling during this time.
With this comes the added challenge of remotely verifying HCP license and address data to ensure compliance with the federal and state regulations, including the temporary measures being adopted by various state licensing boards in response to COVID-19. The need for a solution to automate this compliance process within the tools your organization is using today has never been greater, and MedPro Systems is standing by to help.
Our team is also closely monitoring the state licensing board responses to COVID-19 and the temporary regulation changes they’re enacting. We are actively updating our processes to adapt to these changes, and we are here to answer any questions you may have.
Contact us today, and our team would be happy to discuss how our solutions can fit into your remote HCP and HCO engagement strategies. We can also provide our Case study, on how we are streamlining a Top 5 Pharma’s DTP fulfillment process through automated SLN verification for DSCSA compliance.
