Our mission is to make medicines that help people live longer, healthier, more active lives. To achieve this mission, Lilly works with various individuals and organizations to improve patient outcomes and the healthcare system.
We are proud of the support we provide in collaboration with others to help advance the treatment and care of those battling illnesses. We also believe transparency is critical to rebuilding trust in our industry. Lilly was the first company (in 2004) to establish an online database of our clinical trial results, and the first company (in 2007) to establish a public registry of our grants and charitable contributions. And, in 2009, we became the first company to report our payments to physicians for speaking and advising services. Lilly strives to be a leading voice and example in transparency efforts in the biopharmaceutical industry.
Lilly Clinical Trial Registry
In 2004, Lilly became the first company to voluntarily make public or U.S. clinical trials and our clinical trials data in the Lilly Clinical Trial Registry.
Lilly Grant Registry
In 2007, Lilly became the first biopharmaceutical company to publicly report the funding we provide in the U.S. to institutions in the form of educational grants and charitable contributions to support medical education, patient education and other worthy activities that we believe increase health care knowledge and improve patient care. The Lilly Grant Office administers this program.
Lilly Public Affairs & Political Contributions
Lilly supports candidates of any party who support public policies that contribute to pharmaceutical innovation and health needs of patients. Eligible Lilly employees in the U.S. may choose to make voluntary contributions to the Lilly Political Action Committee (PAC), an entity funded solely by employee contributions. For more information, view our contribution reports.
In keeping with the Lilly family's commitment to good corporate responsibility, Lilly contributes at the level of the most generous companies worldwide -- a goal it achieves annually through product and cash contributions. See Lilly Foundation or see the Lilly Foundation Report on Charitable Giving.
Lilly Physician Payment Registry
When doctors work together with the pharmaceutical industry, patients benefit - because collaboration makes new medicines possible, delivers quality health education, and provides better insights into unmet patient needs. Lilly is now tracking aspects of our financial relationships with physicians in the U.S. as required by a Corporate Integrity Agreement we entered into with the Office of the Inspector General of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in February 2009. Lilly discloses payments and other types of value provided to all U.S.-based physicians in the Physician Payment Registry. To learn more, visit the Lilly Physician Payment Registry website.
Lilly Clinical Study Data Transparency
Lilly performs clinical studies to answer scientific questions. These studies provide valuable information about the efficacy and safety of a medicine in a specific patient population. Lilly has a history of being transparent and has recently updated our Clinical Study Data Transparency policies.
Lilly recognizes that researchers may want to use data from studies on approved medicines to answer scientific questions. Lilly has joined a multiple company data sharing platform and researchers looking for access to Lilly clinical study data can access it at clinicalstudydatarequest.com.
