PhRMA Alters Their Code on Interactions: How to Prepare

PhRMA has adjusted its Code on Interactions, partly in response to the Special Fraud Alert issued by the OIG.

Pro-ficiency is on a mission is to eliminate protocol deviations, one clinical study at a time. This mission is more important than ever, given the recent changes to the Code on Interactions with Health Care Professionals by the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America (PhRMA). The update was announced on August 6, 2021, and will take effect on January 1, 2022.
The full Code on Interactions can be found here.

The update was partly released in response to a Special Fraud Alert issued by the Office of Inspector General (OIG) on November 16, 2020.
The full Special Fraud Alert issued by the OIG can be found here.

The OIG memo highlighted several key concerns including on-site meetings held at high-end resorts or hotels, expensive meals, and the overall medical value of meetings sponsored by members of PhRMA. Although, the industry has made many changes over the years regarding its interactions with HCPs the critical issue remains the same and that is providing important scientific or clinical information that an HCP can utilize in an unbiased and instructive manner.

Pro-ficiency’s virtual simulation technology can do just that – provide clinical instruction in a web-based solution that allows the user to learn at any time and at their own pace; thereby, ensuring that the information is retained and utilized to ultimately eliminate protocol deviations and improve overall understanding.

In addition to providing a training platform for clinical trials, the technology can also be easily used for presenting CME’s to HCPs in a remote, cost-effective, and accountable method that eliminates the risk of triggering any concerns associated with the revised PhRMA Code or the recent OIG Fraud Memo.

Reach out to Pro-ficiency to learn how we can help you eliminate protocol deviations and improve HCP training.

    I’m amazed, I have to admit. Seldom do I come across a
    blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my search
    for something relating to this.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this
    site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s very
    difficult to get that “perfect balance” between usability and appearance.
    I must say you’ve done a fantastic job with this.

    Additionally, the blog loads super quick for me on Safari.

    Excellent Blog!

    Hey there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having difficulty finding one?
    Thanks a lot!
