Survey: Most Physicians Report Being Unaffected By Open Payments Database

The Wall Street Journal (2/20) “Pharmalot” blog reported on a new survey of physicians regarding the Open Payments database, a government-funded means of tracking payments and items of value that drug and device makers give physicians for consulting and other services. While 72% said they were aware of the database’s existence, only 53% said they were familiar with the law framework that created the database or the impact it could have on their activities. Just 46% visited the website, of which 15% admitted they were interested in what had been reported about their peers. Additionally, 76% said their participation in industry activities has remained unchanged since payments began being reported in 2013
