Park Nicollet Health Services has become the first healthcare system in Minnesota to require doctors to publicly disclose their financial relationships with drug and medical device companies. The move by Park Nicollet is designed to allay concerns that these relationships pose a conflict of interest by influencing doctors' treatment decisions. Drug and device companies defend the payments, saying doctors' expertise is needed to make their products better.
