ASP is committed to providing high quality products and services to health care professionals and patients and to supporting the communities in which we work and live.
Medical science evolves rapidly with new information becoming available constantly. As part of the health care system, we understand the need to support health care professionals in their pursuit of the most current education to provide the best patient care possible and recognize that our collaboration with physicians can lead to important medical advances. There is further need to support patients, caregivers, and communities to ensure that they have the information and products required to live healthy and productive lives.
We hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards to ensure that our interactions with health care professionals, institutions and non-profit organizations are conducted in an appropriate manner. To that end, we regularly review and improve our practices as part of an ongoing commitment to ensure ethical and transparent interactions with medical professionals.
Our primary focus is making life-changing, long-term differences in human health and disease management for those who may be helped by the products and services we provide. The purpose of our disclosure of payments on this site is to demonstrate our ongoing commitment to this endeavor. It is our hope that this disclosure will help the general public to better understand the nature and volume of programs that we support in the interest of advancing patient care and supporting local communities.
"We are responsible to the communities in which we live and work and to the world community as well. We must be good citizens - support good works and charities and bear our fair share of taxes. We must encourage civic improvements and better health and education. We must maintain in good order the property we are privileged to use protecting the environment and natural resources."
