The Patient's Right to Know - About Their Doctor’s Other Relationships

Hosted by  • 

The so-called Sunshine Act, which is part of Obamacare, mandates financial disclosure by drug companies and the makers of medical devices. How much have they paid to doctors, dentists, chiropractors, podiatrists, and optometrists; not just for medical research, but for promotional speaking, consulting and dinners out? A new, federal website is now online, and the non-profit investigative journalism organization ProPublica maintains its own records on a website called Dollars for Docs.
