Data Sources and Methodology:
- We leverage company-reported financial transaction data disclosed through CMS Open Payments. This data set captures all transfers of value (e.g., speaking fees, consulting fees, travel, education, and meals) made on behalf of a drug or device manufacturer to a physician. Currently, 42 months of longitudinal data is available - covering payments to more than 900,000 U.S. healthcare professionals.
- Over 700 paid interactions across 500 physicians made on behalf of Vpriv were carefully examined to support our analysis. In addition, interaction data from 3 peer products (e.g. Cerdelga, Cerezyme, and Elelyso ) was leveraged to provide benchmarking and market insights.
