Innovations & Patents

  • At the institutional level we started and lead the Cardio-Oncology program at Cleveland Clinic Florida where we established an innovative mechanism with a Cardio Oncology Clinic at the Cancer Center to facilitate interaction and facilitate access to cardiovascular care for oncology patients. This setting improves workflow and encourages inter-specialty consultations and pathways for expedite care and improves patient care. We have grown our program, the only existing in south east Florida, and receive referrals and consultations from state and national centers.

    At the state level, we started and Chair the Cardio Oncology Committee at the American College of Cardiology (ACC) Florida Chapter (3,000 Chapter members) and started a partnership with the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) Florida Chapter (FLASCO, 3,200 Chapter members). Our successful collaboration program published by the Journal of the American College of Cardiology Cardio-Oncology was a model subsequently adopted by other states. We are working towards starting a Cardio-Oncology state Registry, within the context of the Global Cardio-Oncology Registry that we also lead. We created educational materials for cardiology and oncology practitioners in Florida, available online at the state Chapters websites (ACC and ASCO)

    At the national level, we started a multistate collaborative advocacy network that has now grown into a state, national and international network with cardiologists and oncologists. We are members of the American College of Cardiology Leadership Council for the 2020-2023 term and co-Chair the Advocacy Work Group to improve access to care, improve awareness of cancer and cardiovascular disease in the medical community, and work with government agencies on regulatory issues related to access to expensive medications, and advocate in Congress for legislation for research and public education support.

    At the international level, we participate in the Education Committee of the International Cardio-Oncology Society (ICOS) the international leader in cardio-oncology. To further grow our collaborative model at the state and national level, we developed a large collaborative network that currently has 117 participating hospitals/sites from 23 countries, including many major academic US Centers from 22 states and participants from large academic and community centers from Latin America, Europe, Asia and Australia. We have completed the platform to launch the first Global International Cardio-Oncology Registry to address regional and national differences in delivery of care and outcomes and to evaluate disparities in cardio -oncology care and its impact on outcomes.

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 7/17/2022, Dr. Sadler 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. To learn more about Cleveland Clinic's policies on collaborations with industry and innovation management, go to our Integrity in Innovation page.

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. Click here to view a listing of instances where Cleveland Clinic has identified a Public Health Service (PHS)-Reportable Financial Conflict of Interest and has put measures in place to ensure that, to the extent possible, the design, conduct and reporting of the research is free from bias.

* Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists subscribe to the guidance presented in the PhRMA Code on Interactions with Healthcare Professionals and the AdvaMed Code of Ethics on Interactions with Health Care Professionals. As such, gifts of substantial value are generally prohibited.

All was great except I asked for an appt with Dr Asher and they made the appt with Dr Sadler. His first response was that I should have made an appt with Dr Asher but he would try to get me with him...which could not happen. I am getting together films and history and when Dr Asher receives this we will have a virtual visit. I live 2 hours away in Cape Coral, FL. Would have been nice to see Dr Asher while I was there.
