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.

World-Wide Critical Care Transport

Cleveland Clinic's Critical Care Transport team serves critically ill and highly complex patients across the globe. The role of Critical Care Transport team is to bring critically ill and highly complex patients from around the world here to receive care whether the transfer is by ground or air.

As an integral part of Cleveland Clinic's network, we would like to offer you 10% off Global CARE (Critical Care Air Rescue and Evacuation) - Cleveland Clinic's premier air medical evacuation membership.

When traveling on business or vacationing around the globe, one phone call can bring Cleveland Clinic care to you anytime, anywhere. And they can transport you to any medical facility of your choice. It's easy - and it's affordable.

With Global CARE, if you become hospitalized more than 150 miles from home and cannot travel commercially, Cleveland Clinic's Critical Care Transport team will:

  • Fly you to the Cleveland Clinic or any medical facility of your choice in the United States. Most travel insurance plans get you to the "nearest appropriate facility", giving you no control over the destination or more importantly, the quality of your care that you will receive.
  • Provide you the expertise of a Cleveland Clinic physician or acute care nurse practitioner to care for you in-flight, in addition to other critical care nurses and paramedics.
  • Provide transport anytime, day or night, 365 days a year*. Each year, we complete more than 4,500 medical transports from across the country and around the world.

Emergency medical air transport can cost up to $200,000 and often is not covered by traditional health insurance. But Global CARE coverage costs a fraction of that: $400 per year for individuals or $600 per year for families. And the cost is even less for you. All Cleveland Clinic alumni qualify for a 10 percent discount.

Get Global CARE and get peace of mind knowing that Cleveland Clinic can be on the way as soon as you call.
