Compliance & Ethics
Our interactions with EU Healthcare Providers
Our interactions with physicians and other health care providers are critical to our patient care mission. In collaboration with physicians and other health care providers, we develop new therapies and deliver innovative, less-invasive medical devices and procedures for the benefit of patients.
MedTech Code of Ethical Business practice
Boston Scientific is a member of MedTech Europe, and as such we are a strong supporter of this important Industry code, recently introduced , that will be effective starting January 1st , 2018.
We respect the obligation of physicians and other health care providers to make independent decisions that are in the best interest of patient care. Selection of medical devices should be based solely on their effectiveness, quality and value.
For more information, in order to participate in a medical congress in 2018, we advise our clients to contact their institution administration or the corresponding HCO or PCO.
We also encourage to visit MedTech Europe website, where there are numerous resources available to explain the new MTE Code and a dedicated information package and blog on the phasing-out of direct sponsorships that you can find at https://www.ethicalmedtech.eu/.
