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 1,800 paid interactions across 1,300 physicians made on behalf of Colcrys were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 5 peer products (e.g. Duzallo, Krystexxa, Mitigare, Uloric, and Zurampic ) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
