Top 10 for 2021: #6 | Bubble CPAP for Increased Lung Function in Premature Babies

Compared with mechanical ventilation and tracheal intubation, b-CPAP minimizes physical trauma and stimulates lung growth when administered over a prolonged period. Given its chronic lung disease reducing capabilities, b-CPAP allows the growth of strong children with lungs full of life.

Top 10 for 2021: #7 | Increased Access to Telemedicine through Novel Practice & Policy Changes

It is a new spin on the old fashioned house call, using technology. Although easy and effective, movement to virtual visits has been slow. COVID-19 restrictions change that pace, forcing clinicians to conduct many of their appointments online. The need was immediate, but risks like data breaches and limits on Medicare coverage slowed expanding access.

MIS2020 Recap: Session 3

Whether you joined us live on October 6, watched content On Demand, or have yet to engage with the 2020 Medical Innovation Summit by Cleveland Clinic, the learning opportunity remains as we continue to host recordings of the live event on our interactive platform. If you prefer to read of the insights delivered, we’ll be recapping our content by session through the end of the year, but don’t forget you have the ability to receive this knowledge first-hand through playback of our star-studded keynotes, firesides, and panels.


Top 10 for 2021: #8 | Vacuum-Induced Uterine Tamponade Device for Postpartum Hemorrhage

Top 10 for 2021: #8 | Vacuum-Induced Uterine Tamponade Device for Postpartum Hemorrhage

The joy of becoming a mother can take an unexpected turn with the unpredictable childbirth complication. Postpartum hemorrhage or PPH, occurs when the uterus fails to contract to stop the bleeding vessels where the placenta was attached inside the body. This most common cause of PPH is called uterine atony, and leads to continued bleeding.

Known as vacuum-induced uterine tamponade, this procedure works more like a woman's body. A device is inserted into the uterus where gentle suction causes it to contract and shrink inside, effectively stopping the bleeding. While the new method is still finding its place in the OB workflow, clinical trials found it controlled bleeding within two minutes in all women tested. As a low tech solution, potentially translatable to developing countries with low resource availability, vacuum-induced uterine tamponade devices are showing promise to new mothers around the world.

Webinar Recap: Changing Medicine: Integrating Robotics

The past several years have shown a growing display of robotic innovation in healthcare. Startup effort in the space has been grand, but to truly be able to change medicine, buy-in from all industry players is required.

Top 10 for 2021: #9 | PARP Inhibitors for Prostate Cancer

With a one-in-nine chance of diagnosis, the disease is an ever-present worry for men. Researchers are constantly looking for new options for prostate cancer resistant to therapies, including metastatic castrate-resistant prostate cancer, or MCRPC, which is considered incurable.

Known for their success in women's cancers, poly ADP-ribose polymerase, or PARP inhibitors, have recently shown success as a targeted cancer therapy in men with similar BRCA gene mutations. While chemotherapy damages DNA as a way to hurt and kill rapidly dividing cancer cells, BRCA genes have a built-in backup plan to repair cancer DNA. PARP proteins fix this damage, allowing the cancer to grow. The inhibitor of PARP prevents repair, effectively blocking cell growth.

Top 10 for 2021: #10 | Immunologics for Migraine Prophylaxis

Throbbing pain, nausea, sensitivity to light, these debilitating symptoms of a migraine are incapacitating nearly 38 million Americans, an estimated 12% of the adult population. Sufferers are forced to call off work or cancel plans, taking a toll on quality of life, career, and finances. But now, the arrival of a new class of medications is providing relief through the prevention of migraines.

Webinar Recap: The Emerging Robotic Ecosystem

For November’s Transformation Tuesdays content, we looked to the health ecosystem to see what’s capturing the attention of the innovator community. Robotics, as it turns out, is a topic our listeners are dying to discuss.


Webinar Recap: The Payor Perspective

Webinar Recap: The Payor Perspective

At the 2020 Medical Innovation Summit, adoption of digital health by payor powerhouses was a central theme. Following an introductory discussion between Cleveland Clinic CEO & President, Tomislav Mihaljevic, MD, and Gail Boudreaux, President & CEO of Anthem, the topic was woven through the event as predictions of widespread, long-term virtual care were shared. To keep this content among our priorities for innovation, we devoted a Transformation Tuesdays live webinar to the idea – once again joined by our partner, and MIS2020 Title Sponsor, Anthem. Moderated by Robert Lorenz, MD, Executive Director, Market Network Services, Cleveland Clinic, representatives from Anthem, Microsoft, and Oscar Health gathered to discuss COVID-19’s effect on virtual visit adoption rates and the open mind maintained by payors as it relates to its coverage.
