Payments to Physicians

Principal Investigator: Abrams 

There is concern in the medical community that payments to physicians by pharmaceutical companies may distort prescribing behavior, whether through a conscious or unconscious mechanism. By combining a proprietary dataset covering 80 million individual prescriptions with payment data collected by state agencies the goal of this research is to produce the first empirical estimates of the relationship between pharma payments and prescription choice.
