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 4/2/2021, Dr. Hedrick has reported no financial relationship with industry that is applicable to this listing.

Once in a while, you get a doctor that actually smiles, listens, involves you in the conversation, and treats you like the unique human being you are. Dr. Joshua Hedrick is that kind of a man. My next surprise was the advanced technology Cleveland Clinic has. It has the best MyChart platform I have ever seen. I was able to link my previous lab data from Doctors from the University of Miami and other hospitals. It really helps to compare all the lab results from previous years in a paperless form. After this visit, I am going to choose even my primary provider from Cleveland Clinic. I am looking forward to my next visit with a vertebrate column specialist, and Dr. Hedrick again.
