Many Brigham and Women’s Hospital doctors work closely with companies 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 the hospital or our 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.
