Innovating by Example: Dr. Andre Machado Sets Innovation-Centric Tone in First Year as Chair of NI

When Dr. Andre Machado took the stage with Chief of Staff Dr. Brian Donley at the 2015 Medical Innovation Summit, as the newly announced chair of the Neurological Institute, he acknowledged the enormous challenges ahead. Challenges ranged from the need for new therapies for epilepsy, alzehimer’s parkinson’s, and stroke to the need for new ways of delivering care remotely and managing chronic pain. Dr. Machado, however is not one to shy away from challenges, no matter the magnitude or the urgency.

CCI Celebrates National Inventors Month 2017

It’s easy to take everyday objects for granted. Things like your desk lamp, your television, an airplane and even your smart phone alter our lives almost every minute of the day. Not to mention the things that save lives, like vaccinations, MRIs and pacemakers.  But behind every little object, machine, and medicine that you encounter, an inventor was behind it. An inventor who couldn’t sleep, who took a risk, who wouldn’t quit until their contraption was just right.

Amenable Robot: The Commercialization Story of simVITRO

When it comes to medical innovation, perhaps the most elusive evidence for any researcher to capture are the potential patient outcomes for a new device or surgical technique. For many innovations, only time will tell. For others, simulation opens the door for discovery.  When it comes to orthopaedics, Cleveland Clinic is fortunate to have a team dedicated to simulating the complex motions and loads of the human body to test a wide variety of implants and surgical techniques. The Clinic’s biomechanical testing platform, also known as simVITRO, is now helping fellow institutions answer clinical questions all over the world.

Data Snapshots: How a Mobile App Is Shaping Young Athletes’ Concussion Care

When Cleveland Clinic’s Concussion Center introduced its C3Logix™ mobile app for concussion assessment in 2011, a key objective was to guide decision-making around how to evaluate and where to dispatch student athletes in the wake of a blow to the head. Data from the app’s fifth year of use confirm that’s indeed a leading way the app is being employed. This post details those data and shares a few other statistical snapshots as applications of C3Logix continue to evolve.
