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 7/26/2023, Dr. Hou 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.

Have nothing but praise for the care I got and the time Dr. Hou spent with me.. She did more for me in that 2 1/2 hour visit than all the doctors, chiropractors, physical therapists, acupuncturists, massage therapists in the Pittsburgh area over the past year.

Dr. Huo is the best!

The purpose of the visit was for a complete evaluation. The physician never even read the referring physicians notes. Did not receive a total evaluation and when I questioned it I was told that the referring physician would have to handle it.

Dr. Hou was excellent, courteous, professional, knowledgeable and responded in an admirable way to every concern I had. I wish I lived closer to Cleveland Clinic so I could see her regularly. She is an outstanding care provider. An asset to your establishment.

Dr. Hou is the best doctor I've been to.

Reviewed on Jan 31, 2024

Dr. Hou is incredibly smart and explains things so thoroughly. She is gentle with her care & makes a patient feel comfortable, reassured, and heard. She is knowledgeable, but the best thing about her is her top notch bed side matters. I can imagine all her patients are facing some kind of tough life and daily adversity, yet always feel physically and psychosocially better after their appointment with Dr. Hou. I feel fortunate to be one of her patients.

I made the appointment online without a referral. The computerized process was somewhat impersonal, but it was effective, and I received an appointment with Dr. Hou easily.

Reviewed on Jun 6, 2023

A good experience. I was very impressed with Dr. Hou's knowledge, and appreciated very much that she reviewed the images of my MRI with me, and pointed out and explained the problems which were demonstrated by those images.
