Transfer of value

All posts tagged Transfer of value

In 2013 it was agreed by European Pharmaceutical Associations that a new policy around disclosure of payments was to be implemented by member Associations. The IPHA (Irish Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Association) who are a member of the EFPIA set up a website to document all payments made from Pharmaceutical companies in Ireland to Irish healthcare professionals. The code is voluntary unlike the open payments system in the US which came in under the sunshine act. The first data disclosed related to 2015 and was published in a central industry report on the IPHA website on 30th June 2016. As the code is voluntary, Irish healthcare professionals can refuse to be listed and currently according to the IPHA about 55% of them are partaking in the voluntary code.
