Industry Relationships

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.

As of 4/2/2018, Dr. Hayden has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing. In general, patients should feel free to contact their doctor about any of the relationships and how the relationships are overseen by Cleveland Clinic.

Public Health Service-Reportable Financial Conflicts of Interest. Cleveland Clinic scientists and physicians engage in basic, translational and clinical research activities, working to solve health problems, enhance patient care and improve quality of life for patients. Interactions with industry are essential to bringing the researchers' discoveries to the public, but can present the potential for conflicts of interest related to their research activities.

As stated previously Dr. Hayden went above and beyond. With the new norm and procedures we have to follow our call was scheduled for approximately 25 minutes and ended up being close to almost 2 hours. He was the first doctor I can truly say that actually seemed to listen as well as explain things in extreme detail unlike Evansville doctors.

Reviewed on Oct 29, 2020

While I haven't actually received the care from Cleveland Clinic in person the fact Dr. Hayden worked so quickly I am beyond thankful and truly look forward to having a medical team that will listen and has the expertise that our area doesn't have.

Dr. Hayden was professional yet compassionate and had a sense of urgency. We are very pleased!

My condition is very long and complex so I think prescribing and diagnosing the condition is something that cannot be done virtually but Dr Hayden did a fantastic job and spent an awful long time with me and offered some very good points

Dr. Hayden is a sensitive, well-informed physician.

Reviewed on Mar 3, 2020

I was very impressed with Dr. Hayden and think he is exemplary...and perfect for the type of multi-faceted exams he oversaw. My first appointment with him was a review of all my health issues, making sure I was aware of all the testing to be done in the three days I was there, the purpose, and the other physicians I would be seeing. It was comforting to know he was going to provide the basic information we went over together to the other six doctors I'd be visiting. My last appointment was with him and we reviewed all from the doctors and tests. I learned much from his analysis and thoughts on treatment. On a personal note, Dr. Hayden is a delightful person with an engaging way of making you feel comfortable talking about problems and giving you hope that there are options to help.

Reviewed on Nov 21, 2019

Dr. Hayden was so patient and understanding. He took over an hour to listen to all my concerns and worries. I never felt rushed or like I was wasting his time. My over all experience was amazing. I will definitely be recommending Cleveland Clinic from here on out.
