2017 U.S. Trends in Aggregate Spend, Disclosure & Transparency

White Paper

December 5, 2017
Key Highlights

Most respondents have increased confidence in their respective company’s ability to report accurately and completely and have begun dedicating additional time and resources to leveraging the transparency data for business and compliance insights.

With the focus shifting away from the end reporting, companies have continued to invest in systems and processes that manage “upstream” relationships with healthcare providers and consultants, recognizing that the greater compliance risks center around these relationships than on the reported spend itself.

In order to offset increasing investments to comply with emerging transparency requirements outside of the US, companies have continued the trend of outsourcing some or all of their existing transparency operations as a way to reduce costs internally.
