Very interesting article. So, if a conflict-of-interest policy goes into effect, then how will physicians and staff learn about new products? How will they be educated on technology?
Would policy limit learning about new goods?
I am in full support of regulating industry and ensuring that patient outcome is the first and foremost driving factor, but what about those facilities that only care about cost initiatives and are willing to settle for clinically inferior products to improve their bottom line. You lock out vendors, you lock out advancement and education and the vital flow of information to facilities and physicians.
