Boston, MA, May 2, 2023 — Groupize, the Total Meeting Management platform, today launched ‘HCP Digital Sign-In,’ its newest module designed to complement their Speaker Bureau Travel and Meetings Management solutions for the Life Sciences industry. With this expansion, Pharmaceutical and Medical Device field representatives can seamlessly maintain compliance with US Federal Open Payments (Sunshine Act) while engaging with Healthcare Professionals (HCPs). This includes a wide range of event types, such as office visits, speaker bureaus, dinner meetings and clinical trials.
Since 2014, Life Sciences manufacturers have been required to capture and annually report transfers of value to US physicians and teaching hospitals under Open Payments. A process, if done manually, can be time-consuming and often error-prone, exposing the manufacturer to compliance risk and potential penalties. With the added Open Payments expansion in 2021 to include Non-Physician Practitioners under Covered Recipients, there is now a greater volume than ever of interactions that must be reported, establishing a clear need for a digital and automated solution to help reduce this burden.
The HCP Digital Sign-In module offers a user-friendly experience that works across phones, tablets, and desktops, making it easy for sales representatives to check-in, obtain electronic signatures and validate HCPs in real-time. Coupled with its SAP Concur Expense import feature, HCP Digital Sign-In streamlines the expense management process and reduces errors and time-consuming manual tasks.
“We see this as a valuable addition to our comprehensive event platform,” said Charles de Gaspe Beaubien, CCO at Groupize. “Our aim is to continue to provide and expand upon our cutting-edge solutions that simplify event management while ensuring efficiency and compliance.”
To support real-time validation of HCP credentials at the event sign-up portal through the module, Groupize has expanded its partnership with MedPro Systems. MedPro is the leading provider of commercial and compliance solutions for the Life Sciences industry – their premier MedProID database enables accurate HCP data capture at the point of engagement for all Federal & State aggregate Spend reporting requirements. Groupize customers can then track and view attendance data and no-shows via the Groupize platform.
“The HCP Digital Sign-In is the perfect complement to the comprehensive Groupize Event Platform,” said Ron Strauss, Vice President Compliance at MiMedx.
