Eli Lilly publishes list of payments to physicians

September 4, 2009

Eli Lilly and Co. has launched an online registry detailing recent payments the drugmaker awarded to physicians and other healthcare professionals.

In late July, Eli Lilly and Co. launched an online registry detailing recent payments the drugmaker awarded to physicians and other healthcare professionals.

The list, which Lilly calls its "faculty registry," reflects compensation data for the first quarter of 2009. The drugmaker says it will update the registry quarterly. Nearly 3,400 physicians and other healthcare professionals are listed. The average payment per service provided is just over $1,000, with healthcare professionals conducting six activities on average.

Faculty appearing in the registry either advised Lilly or conducted medical lectures designed for healthcare professionals and patient education. The site discloses each professional's name, location, description of the services provided, and the compensation paid, among other details.
