From the New York Times article:
The Cleveland Clinic plans to announce this week it has begun publicly reporting the business relationships that any of its 1,800 staff doctors and scientists have with drug and device makers.

The clinic, one of the nation’s most prominent medical research centers, is making a complete disclosure of doctors’ and researchers’ financial ties available on its Web site,
“They are breaking a new path here,” said Dr. David J. Rothman, the president of the Institute on Medicine as a Profession, a nonprofit group based at Columbia University that studies potential conflicts of interest.
