Statement About Doctors' Relationships with Outside Companies (Industry)

Many Partners HealthCare (Partners) doctors work closely with companies (industry) that make drugs, medical equipment or provide other products and services. When our doctors work with these companies, it results in the development of new and better ways to diagnose and treat illness, and benefits the health of the public.

Sometimes the companies pay Partners HealthCare or Partners doctors for services, such as consulting or giving educational talks. Doctors may also own stock in these companies. We review all of these relationships to make sure our policy is followed so that your care is not affected in any way.

Information about these relationships is available at openpaymentsdata.cms.gov/search, a website sponsored by the federal government. To learn more about the Partners policy and how Partners handles doctors’ relationships with outside companies, visit the Partners Office for Interactions with Industry website. If you have questions about these relationships, please ask your doctor or contact the Office for Interactions with Industry at phsoii@partners.org.
