Money for Doctors

July 18, 2011

Golocalprov has mined the database at ProPublica to document how much money RI doctors have received from the pharmaceutical industry.

It’s both a local and a national story, as you can see from Propublica’s extensive database on doctors who have accepted money from drug makers.

None of this is totally new (the data is from 2009 and 2010) but it offers a window into the sometimes perverse releationship between the two industries.

Curious if your doc takes money from drug makers? Check out Propublica’s website where you can look up his/her name.
