The industry and healthcare professionals place great importance on transparency, including in their own relationships. In Luxembourg, for the innovative pharmaceutical industry, these relationships are regulated by our code of ethics. However, in order to move towards greater transparency of these interactions, a central, common and publicly accessible transparency platform was developed in 2015 by the industry in close collaboration with several associations of healthcare professionals.
Companies that are members are required to publish the incentives and benefits they have made to healthcare professionals or organizations.
Integrity and independence of healthcare professionals are central
As crucial as it is, the relationship with the pharmaceutical industry cannot affect the independence of your healthcare professional or organization. To ensure this independence, member companies originally took the initiative to make their relationships with healthcare professionals and organizations transparent.
The integrity of your healthcare professional's decision to start, continue or stop a specific treatment is one of the pillars of our healthcare system. In recent years, society has shown increasing interest in the nature of the relationships between the pharmaceutical or medical device industry and healthcare stakeholders: the public is demanding more transparency and confirmation that these relationships do not negatively impact treatment decisions and that a healthcare professional's motive for prescribing a drug or medical device is based solely on clinical data and is intended to ensure the best possible patient care.
