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 2/21/2022, Dr. Higgins 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. 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.

Dr. Higgins was very thorough. He also explained treatment options very clearly.

Setting up the appointment was done professionally and promptly. The entire support staff is amazing, particularly Diana De La Rosa who not only coordinate my appointment with Dr Higgins, but also carefully coordinate a multitude of tests while I was visiting the clinic. She was resourceful, effective and communicated with me proactively throughout the process.

Dr. Higgins is the most caring, knowledgeable and intelligent doctor I have ever met in my life. He took an exceptional amount of time explaining my condition (which is somewhat complicated), discussed the tests and their purpose, possible medical treatments and clearly defined goals/outcomes for both of us to ensure we tackle the issues head on. His interpretation of the tests clearly demonstrate someone with incredible knowledge but somehow he manages to stay humble, human and empathetic. I flew from Northern Florida to meet him and his team and he is now my cardiologist moving forward. I left the office believing that together we can control and even beat this disease. I would recommend him and his team to anyone suffering from serious cardiac structure failure.

Dr Higgins was awesome (and my dad was amazed at how fast he can type!). He did his assessment and gave his opinion BUT the most important thing he did was he created a longer term plan and that gave my dad hope that there are other options to try. He is awesome!

Dr. Higgins was well informed concerning my medical history. He was personable and stayed on point while taking my question respectfully. At no point did I feel rushed. I am grateful for the attention and thoroughness I received.
