University of Miami database to reveal payments to doctors

Miami Herald, April 1, 2010

The University of Miami medical school has become one of the first in the country to offer an online, searchable database revealing its doctors' relationships with outside businesses. The UM website is searchable by name of faculty member or by name of company. It will be updated at least annually and now includes data for fiscal 2009. It lists doctors' relationship with outside companies—but not the dollar amounts of the deals, which will start to be added later this year.
