What is Open Payments?

Open Payments is a national disclosure program that promotes a more transparent and accountable health care system. Open Payments houses a publicly accessible database of payments that reporting entities, including drug and medical device companies, make to covered recipients like physicians.

The data is open to individual interpretation.

What is a Graph database?

Graph databases (Neo4j, AWS Neptune etc.) stores and manages data in its more natural state. The data remains connected and graph databases maintain the data relationships that deliver lightning fast query response, deeper data context for better analytics and a flexible and modifiable data model.
