AdvaMed’s FCPA Efforts
AdvaMed works to facilitate ethical interactions between companies and health care professionals (HCPs) globally. Ethical interactions enhance patient access to the safe and effective use of medical technologies by ensuring appropriate training of HCPs by companies.
Ethical interactions also promote innovation and the ongoing development of advanced medical technologies through legitimate and transparent collaboration between HCPs and companies to identify and bring to market new products.
Further, ethical interactions facilitate open and transparent business environments free from the high costs of corruption, enhancing the ability of companies, especially small and medium-sized companies, to participate in global markets. Ethical interactions ensure that medical decision-making is made in the best interest of the patient.
