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, 42 months of longitudinal data is available – covering payments to more than 900,000 U.S. healthcare professionals.
- Over 15,800 paid interactions across 5,200 physicians made on behalf of Vimpat were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 11 peer products (e.g. Aptiom, Banzel, Briviact, Fycompa, Onfi, Oxtellar XR, Qudexy XR, Roweepra, Sabril, Spritam, and Trokendi XR ) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
