Sunshine Act data are now public. Do patients care?

It hasn't been studied rigorously but there's this from Kane Scrutiny at Medscape:

It appears that—at least as far as patients are concerned—the hoopla over Open Payments was nearly as big a fizzle as was the supposed impending doom of Y2K. When I asked physicians what they heard from patients about their Sunshine Act payments, most responded, "I haven't heard a peep."
