In re: Cleveland Clinic to Add Transparency.

The Cleveland Clinic plans to announce this week it has begun publicly reporting the business relationships that any of its 1,800 staff doctors and scientists have with drug and device makers.

The clinic, one of the nation’s most prominent medical research centers, is making a complete disclosure of doctors’ and researchers’ financial ties available on its Web site, http://www.clevelandclinic.org.

Seems like a move more will have to follow, but definitely a good move considering the money out there from Rx companies and the possibility of ‘confused’ motives.
