R-Squared Engages LeanForward to Develop Online Training on the Sunshine Act
R-Squared Services & Solutions, Inc. (R-Squared), a leading developer of compliance software for the life sciences industry, has engaged LeanForward to develop R-Squared University, and its first online training course, “Understanding and Complying with the Sunshine Act.” The innovative elearning program will facilitate the onerous task of training employees and agents on the far reaching requirements of the Sunshine Act before the implementation date of August 1, 2013.
On February 1, 2013, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the release of the final rule implementing a section of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that is commonly referred to as “The Physician Payments Sunshine Law” or the “Sunshine Act.” In furtherance of industry transparency, the Sunshine Act imposes considerable new obligations on, and affects virtually all employees and agents of, life sciences manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors.
R-Squared’s team of experts leveraged its substantial expertise and experience implementing Sunshine Act requirements across a broad spectrum of companies in the preparation of this web-based training program. The course reflects a pragmatic approach, as it allows for customization, builds on adult learning principles, and lays out the regulatory requirements in a concise, easy to retain manner. The elearning program, which can be completed at R-Squared University or purchased for upload to any SCORM or AICC compliant learning management system (LMS), includes the following topics:
- The policy and basics of the Sunshine Act
- Identifying when data collection is required
- Identifying, capturing, and classifying the information
- Reporting the information to CMS
“We are pleased to be working with LeanForward to expand our compliance training offerings,” said Michael Bell, CEO of R-Squared. “We already author compliance training content for some of the largest health care and life sciences companies in the world. This relationship will enable us to reach a wider audience, and in an efficient, cost-effective manner,” he said.
