Recently, different initiatives which require financial transparency or disclosure of the payments and transfers of value from MedTech and pharmaceutical companies to Healthcare Professionals (HCPs) have appeared. Different countries (e.g. France, USA) have adopted laws that require specific disclosure requirements on companies. These laws are referred to as Sunshine Laws/Acts.
Transparency is however broader than only this "financial" transparency. For more information on the different uses of the concept of transparency within the healthcare sector, please click here.
Eucomed strongly supports transparency as a broad principle to be conformed to by all stakeholders and in particular applying to companies' interactions with HCPs.
