Inventors' Partnership with Cleveland Clinic Innovations

For over nine decades, Cleveland Clinic has been a leader in developing techniques and technologies that have improved and extended human life. We are all aware of the contributions made by Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists in the areas like cardiac care, dialysis, transplant surgery, and orthopedic device development. For nearly, 15 years, Cleveland Clinic Innovations (CCI) has provided the infrastructure and expertise to develop and commercialize the transcendent thought of Cleveland Clinic Staff.

We recognized that this unique competency was scalable and transferable; you may have heard of the Global Healthcare Innovation Alliance, through which CCI assists other academic medical centers and research universities to create their own innovation culture and afford their innovators access to our mature process. The success of that program informed us that we had identified yet another distinguishing characteristic of our great institution.

There is no more important group for whom Cleveland Clinic Innovations should extend their services than the alumni who contributed so profoundly to the Clinic's legacy and expand our identity by representing us all over the world. We now have architected the echoism by which all alumni of Cleveland Clinic can benefit from the industry-leading capability of CCI, resulting in enhancement of your ability to help patients, as well as realize the personal and professional fulfillment that accompanies inventorship.

Do you have a solution to improve lives? Learn how you can partner with Cleveland Clinic Innovations. Submit an inquiry or call us at 216.444.5757.
