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. Currently, 30 months of longitudinal data is available – covering payments to more than 800,000 U.S. healthcare professionals.
- Over 2,400 paid interactions across 1,500 physicians made on behalf of Apriso were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 8 peer products (e.g. Delzicol, Entyvio, Humira, Lialda, Pentasa, Remicade, Simponi, and Uceris) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
