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 7,800 paid interactions across 5,000 physicians made on behalf of Zyvox were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 10 peer products (e.g. Avycaz, Cubicin, Dalvance, Invanz, Minocin, Orbactiv, Sivextro, Teflaro, Vibativ, and Zerbaxa) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
