Conflict of Interest Policy

As part of Arbor Research’s commitment to the health care community, key stakeholders, and consumers, we hold ourselves to the highest standards of research integrity, including matters of conflict of interest. We promote objectivity in research by establishing policies and procedures that provide a reasonable expectation that the design, conduct, and reporting of research will be free from bias resulting from organizational conflicts of interests, financial conflicts of interest, and personal conflicts of interests (including conflicts of commitment). These policies reflect our Statement of Values and Code of Ethics, and require disclosures by staff and members of the board of directors. Interests both at an individual level and at an organizational level are reviewed and managed.

Our policies and procedures are in compliance with, and may exceed, the federal regulations defined in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Final Rule on Financial Conflicts of Interest and the associated sections of 42 CFR Part 50, Subpart F and 45 CFR Part 94, in addition to any applicable directives from other funding or government sources, Federal Acquisition Regulation Subpart 9.5, and Federal Acquisition Regulation Part 3.
