||PENN Medicine / Industry
Changes in both the health-care and pharmaceutical industries
have made the relationship between health-care professionals
and the pharmaceutical industry much more complex. The PENN
Medicine / Industry Forum is designed to encourage an open
dialogue among representatives of PENN Medicine and other
local health-care organizations, the pharmaceutical industry,
the insurance industry, and regulatory agencies. Topics to
be discussed will include: perspectives on the health-care
/ pharmaceutical industry relationship; access to hospital
facilities and health-care professionals; marketing within
the University of Pennsylvania Health System (UPHS) and other
health systems; business implications of calling and/or not
calling on health-care professionals; and perceptions of and
by sales representatives and health-care professionals.
