Track Drug Company Payments

Post by Shayk » Wed Oct 01, 2014 3:49 pm

The Washington Post had a "Wonkblog" today entitled: You can now track the billions that drug companies pay doctors and hospitals
..the federal government has compiled a massive database of how much drug and device companies spend on consulting fees, research grants, travel, free lunches and other items worth more than $10.
In just the last five months of 2013, the data show that 4.4 million such payments worth a combined $3.5 billion were made by these companies. Those payments went to 546,000 individual physicians and 1,360 teaching hospitals.
It's not a database I can utilize but maybe there are some who can. I'm curious as to how much the big MS centers and neuros receive since they remain adamant pharma has no influence on them.

Take care all and if you come up with some data, please let us know. Thanks!
