Data Sources and Methodology:

  • MDDetails leverages company-reported financial transaction data disclosed through CMS Open Payments. This data set captures all transfers of value (e.g., speaking fees, consulting fees, travel, education, and meals) made on behalf of a drug or device manufacturer to a physician. More than four years of longitudinal data is available – covering payments to more than 975,000 U.S. healthcare professionals.
  • Over 21,300 paid interactions across 11,500 physicians made on behalf of Advair were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 22 peer products (e.g. Anoro, Arnuity, Asmanex, Bevespi, Breo, Brovana, Cinqair, Dulera, Flovent, Incruse, Nucala, Perforomist, ProAir, Qvar, Seebri Neohaler, Spiriva, Stiolto, Symbicort, Trelegy Ellipta, Tudorza, Utibron, and Xolair ) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
