Key Changes Recommended to S. 2029 to Ensure Information is Meaningful and in Appropriate Context

WASHINGTON, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Advanced Medical Technology Association (AdvaMed) today expressed support for the appropriate disclosure of financial relationships with physicians by putting forth key changes to proposed legislation that would help ensure patients receive useful, meaningful information that puts such payments in full context.

"Continued innovation in medical technology relies on direct interaction with physicians who have first-hand clinical experience with advanced medical treatments in their practice of patient care. Our industry works closely with physicians to invent new medical devices, improve existing technologies and provide training to physicians to ensure they can use devices safely and effectively," said Stephen J.

-- Applying the requirements to all comp
