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 1/13/2021, Dr. Winter 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.

Throughout my treatment for lymphoma over the 9 months or so, Dr. Allison Winter has been an excellent doctor. She is extremely knowledgeable, patient and caring. She took the necessary time to explain my condition, test results and treatment and showed genuine concern. From the beginning, I felt that I was in good hands at a very frightening and stressful time. Please continue to allow Dr. Winter to practice in this manner. Too often these days, medical treatment seems very rushed with the doctors being unwilling or unable to spend time with their patients. My experience with Dr. Winter was not like that.

This was my first appointment with Dr. Winter...all I can say is I loved, loved, LOVED her!!! She is such a "comfortable" doctor to deal with - and I'm one who is always antsy at medical appointments. She is just very NICE - and an extremely knowledgeable physician...and she offered info on my condition that I had not previously been informed of! She's just a great physician.
