Audio/Video Capture at the 2018 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting
AANS plans to capture video, live stream video and/or take photographs at the 2018 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting. By registering/attending the meeting, you grant the AANS the right to use image, video and biography in print, electronic or other media. All postings become the property of the AANS and may be displayed, distributed or used by the AANS for any purpose. Attendees are prohibited from live streaming, photography and video capture without the consent of the AANS. The AANS is not responsible for unauthorized media capture performed by meeting attendees.
Your NPI at the 2018 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting
As part of the health care reform legislation signed into law in March 2010, the Physician Payment Sunshine Act requires medical device, biologic and drug companies to publicly disclose gifts and payments made to physicians, beginning in 2013. For U.S. health care providers, companies must also report any payment or other transfer of items with a minimum value of $10/payment or $100/year to the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS). The National Provider Identifier (NPI) number, a unique identification number assigned to each U.S. health care provider, will be used to record and track these transactions.
To facilitate a quick and accurate record of any transactions during the 2018 AANS Annual Scientific Meeting that may need to be tracked and recorded under the law, the AANS is requesting that U.S. health care providers supply their NPI number as part of their registration for the meeting. This information will not be printed on your badge, but will be included in your barcode-encoded data so that exhibitors can record and track any reportable transactions.
U.S. health care providers should understand that, although supplying your NPI number as part of your AANS Annual Scientific Meeting registration is voluntary, the reporting of transactions with companies under the Sunshine Act is mandatory.
Your NPI number is public; you may search the NPI Registry here.
