Advamed / Compliance Guidelines
The AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with health care professionals was recently revised. The new enhanced code provisions went into effective on July 1, 2009. The revised AdvaMed Code of Ethics further simplifies and distinguishes between appropriate and inappropriate activity between health care professionals and representatives of AdvaMed member companies. The AdvaMed Code of Ethics states that "Companies shall encourage ethical business practices and socially responsible industry conduct and shall not use any unlawful inducements".
AdvaMed recognizes the responsibility to facilitate ethical interactions between Companies and Health Care Professionals in order to ensure that medical decisions are based on the best interests of the patient. The ethical principles that govern these interactions are the subject of the revised "Code".
Arthomed wholly agrees with and strongly endorses both the letter and spirit of the AdvaMed Code of Ethics.
