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 2/15/2020, Dr. Taliercio 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 cannot tell you how much I like and respect Dr. Taliercio. She has given me my life back through persistence with my insurance and treatment for my lung condition. I cannot tell you how much I appreciate her. I had a chronic persistent cough for 7 years... yes 7 full years of living on prednisone. I'm over 2 years cured and doing very well. She is so caring and compassionate. She never lets me leave until I have asked and she has answered every question.

Was difficult determining which department and what doctors do what. I moved to Cleveland from Erie PA and went to an allergy and asthma doctor since I was a baby. it was confusing figuring out who did what and that I will have two instead of one. they were patient with me and helped me get everything on track!

Reviewed on Feb 27, 2020

Dr. Rachel Taliercio is a superior clinician who is as impressive in person as she is on paper. It is clear she knows her specialty well and her warmth and excellent communication skills are obvious immediately. I have been physically declining steadily since my diagnosis of adult onset severe asthma in late 2018 to the point I was having to use a walker to ambulate and had no quality of life as I was almost bedridden. My first appointment with Dr. Taliercio was on Tuesday where she recommended some changes to my prescription medicines. Today is Friday and I am already feeling some positive effect for the first time in a year. Thanks to Dr.Taliercio's accurate evaluation and proposed solutions, I finically truly have hope that I will improve from this phase and survive the year. She has my highest recommendation for her specialty skills and her communication abilities.

Dr Talericio is an excellent physician. She is extremely knowledgeable and caring. I will continue to drive the 5 hours to see her. I credit her for keeping me alive, because prior to my seeing her for the 1st time, my providers had already discussed my passing, because there was nothing more they could do. When she started my care, things turned around- my family and I hold her in very high esteem. We trust her implicitly!
