Excellent! The patient has a right to know the relationship between a doctor and the manufactures of drugs and medical devices. A patient or a consumer has the right to know that their doctor does not have a conflict of interest when prescribing medical care.

The legislation is commendable if data is accurately compiled and shared with patients. The resistance to transparency is understandable, given the easy access that pharma and medical device industry operatives had to doctors for so many years. The conflicted doctors that miss this cozy relationship are not the doctors I wish to support with my trust and tax dollars. Thank you, Jim Spencer and StarTribune for reporting on this important story.
