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 10/12/2020, Dr. Lackey 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.

I would strongly recommend Dr. Lackey to my family and friends. She cares about her patients. It showed in how she changed her system by keeping her patients safe. You only had to go into the building when it was necessary, not sitting and waiting with a room full of people, even with them being spaced and masked. I'm sure it wasn't easy adjusting her schedule, but I'm glad she had her patients best interest at heart in this unprecedented times. We all need to be more aware to stay safer.

Under the circumstances of this "virtual" visit, my primary physician provided me with the same attention to my health care as she has always shown to me. I missed receiving the print out of our visit and will be following up with my in-home blood pressure monitor. per her instructions, I will have blood work drawn "some time this summer.". The steps that have been implemented to "socially distance" seniors with existing health conditions (I'm 67 and have asthma and my B/P tends to run a bit higher that ideal; the CCF satellite offices have done and are doing a terrific job in the protocol techniques being used to keep the patients and themselves as "protected" as possible from any form of possible transmission. I pray the warmer weather and use of air conditioning will not exacerbate the spread if this virus. All those with whom I've been in contact have been doing a great job as to following the safety protocols to reduce transmission in the offices. Setting up the Zoom calls, trying to maintain social distancing and wearing masks and gloves. Doctors, staff and patients are all working to help reduce further transmissions. I am grateful for everyone's attention to detail and their continued commitment to the care provided to the patients. We can all continue to help each other as we go forward as we deal each day with our efforts to protect others and ourselves.
