Slow Progress

The British drug company GlaxoSmithKline has finally decided to stop paying doctors to promote their drugs.  Currently they spend tens of millions of dollars in the practice.  'Course it'll take until 2016 for it to actually stop, but it's a step in the right direction.

They're also changing their compensation system for their sales reps and taking out the number of prescriptions written. 

The company claims none of these changes have anything to do with the investigation in China. 

Whatever the cause, at least they're moving in the right direction.
