The federal Open Payments website, displaying drug and medical device company payments to physicians and teaching hospitals was launched Tuesday and physicians weren’t the only ones expressing displeasure. Users of the new site immediately began reporting difficulties with the usability of the site and the data. During a news conference, moments before the 2 p.m. ET rollout, a Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services official signaled that there were problems, and said that the website would be further simplified and easier to use “within the next month.”
