About Raed Dweik, MD

Raed Dweik, MD, MBA is the Inaugural Chief of the Integrated Hospital Care Institute (IHI) at the Cleveland Clinic Health System (CCHS) which is home to over 4,000 caregivers and a faculty of over 1,200 physicians and scientists in Ohio, Florida, London, and Abu-Dhabi. As Institute Chief, Dr. Dweik is responsible for setting the strategic direction and the day-to-day operations of the Institute in all areas of clinical care, education, research, and innovation.

The Integrated Hospital Care Institute (IHI) at the Cleveland Clinic is a unique model that does not exist elsewhere in healthcare.  IHI brings hospital-based services under one umbrella by bringing together 5 Departments (Emergency Services, Hospital Medicine, Pulmonary-Critical Care, Infectious Disease, and Anesthesiology) that are home to 12 divisions.  The Institute also has 2 Centers (Critical Care and Perioperative Medicine) designed to organize the clinical, education, and research activities of these services across the entire Cleveland Clinic Health System.  The leaders, providers, educators, researchers, and caregivers of IHI work collaboratively with hospitals across geographies to innovate and reimagine the patient journey as we provide seamless access to our high-quality care and cutting-edge research to more patients in more locations in the United States and around the globe. Graduate medical education programs in IHI include over 150 residents and over 100 fellows in 14 specialties and subspecialties in addition to an APP-CRNA School and APP-ICU Fellowship.  We conduct research activities across the spectrum of basic, translational, and clinical research with over 650 IRB-approved projects supported by over 100 federal grants, 150 industry sponsored trials, and various foundation awards.

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.
