Glaxo Expands List of Public Payments to Doctors – Health Blog – WSJ

In its Health Blog, the WSJ reports on March 25, 2009:

GlaxoSmithKline last year promised to publish payments to U.S. docs for consulting and other services starting in 2010, and to cap those payments at $150,000 per doctor a year. Now, the company is expanding on its promise.For clinical trials starting in 2010 and after, Glaxo said yesterday it will publicly report the money it pays U.S. doctors and their institutions to carry out the studies*** Disclosing more and more about payments to health-care professionals is a trend du jour in the industry. The list of drug companies and device makers that have said they’ll start reporting payments to docs includes Pfizer, Eli Lilly, Merck and Medtronic. Exactly what payments get reported varies from company to company.  All those self-imposed reporting plans could soon be moot. The Physician Payment Sunshine Act, which has been kicking around for a while, would create national rules for what payments drug and device makers have to publicly disclose.
