Ties Between Physicians and Drug Companies Still Too Strong: the,Prescription Project Offers Solutions to Prevent Conflicts of,Interest

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 26, 2007 - A new study published today in the New England Journal of Medicine ("A National Survey of Physician-Industry Relationships") on the extent of doctor and pharmaceutical company relationships, highlights the need for profession-wide and public policy reforms promoted by The Prescription Project. The article concludes that the existing, voluntary PhRMA (Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America) Code isn't working.

The Prescription Project offers solutions to this continuing crisis by outlining specific suggestions for academic medical centers, physician leadership and policy makers to end industry influence on medicine:

"The fact that 94% of physicians have relationships with pharmaceutical companies is a clear barrier to a trusting and effective doctor patient relationship. Academic medical centers and professional medical societies must take the lead in protecting public trust in the medical profession by adopting reforms," said David J. Rothman, PhD, Associate Director of The Prescription Project and president of Institute on Medicine as a Profession, which funded the NEJM study.

"Though the financial ties are extensive, the change we are advocating for can be made and must be made. One can look to the example of several leading academic medical centers to see that this approach can work. We now need a profession-wide adoption of those policies at all hospitals, physician practices and professional medical societies," Rothman continued.

"Legislators across the country are concerned about the influence of the pharmaceutical industry on doctors, and how it affects patient care and costs," said Rob Restuccia, Director of The Prescription Project. "Proposals to stem the tide of industry gifts and end data-mining are moving to the floors of state houses nationwide."
