The proliferation of legal requirements (law and regulation) governing the financial relationships between medical product companies and the doctors who order their products has led to what can only be described as a tangled mess. Many device companies have had to add personnel, or employ expensive consultants in order to have a hope of complying. 

Additionally, doctors offices and clinics, now abreast of the paperwork required by Medicare and the private insurers (including Stark compliance), are now beginning to work on documentation they need to be sure they can either validate or contest the reports industry makes under Sunshine.
