Data Sources and Methodology:

MDDetails leverages physician payments data made available 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 speaking payments to more than 15,000 U.S. healthcare professionals.

In order to determine total spend, we have aggregated fees for both continuing medical education (CME) and non-CME speaking programs.
