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 22,300 paid interactions across 7,800 physicians made on behalf of Nucynta were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 13 peer products (e.g. Abstral, Butrans, Embeda, Fentora, Hysingla ER, Ionsys, Lazanda, Lyrica, Opana, OxyContin, Subsys, Xartemis XR, and Zohydro ER) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
