Brian Sharkey Presents Webinar on the Impact of Worldwide HCP Payments Transparency on Medical Device Companies

3/23/2016 | Video

Porzio Counsel and Porzio Life Sciences Vice President Brian P. Sharkey presented the webinar "HCP Payments Transparency Outside of the US: An Evolving Complex Environment with Implications for Medical Device Companies," on March 23, 2016 to members of the Medical Device Manufacturers Association ("MDMA").

The webinar examined the growing trend of transparency worldwide and its affect on medical device companies specifically. The movement towards transparency in interactions between healthcare practitioners ("HCPs") and the life sciences industry began in the United States with the Open Payments program, but has quickly expanded well beyond US borders. Geographically, the global transparency movement extends to the Pacific Rim, as the Japanese and Australian pharmaceutical industry groups have recently modified their individual-level reporting requirements.
