AdvaMed advocates on a global basis for the highest ethical standards and works to facilitate a legal environment that fosters medical technology innovation and timely patient access to safe and effective medical technologies.
Best Interests of the Patient
Medical technology companies serve the interests of patients through beneficial collaborations with health care professionals to advance medical technologies, enhance the safe and effective use of medical technologies, encourage research and education, and foster charitable donations and giving. To ensure that these collaborative relationships meet high ethical standards, they must be conducted with appropriate transparency and in compliance with applicable laws, regulations and government guidance. AdvaMed recognizes the obligation 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.
