Quality Care
Shared Medical Appointments

Patients in many specialties have the option of getting follow-up care in a group visit setting. Not only do they have a chance for extended time with their physician, they are often able to consult with other specialists, including nurses, nurse practitioners or dietitians. You learn more in a relaxed, personalized atmosphere, and patient and caregiver satisfaction with group visits is high. Shared Medical Appointment

No. 1 First-Year ACO

An Accountable Care Organization (ACO) is a group of doctors, hospitals and other providers who come together to give coordinated, high quality care to Medicare patients. Cleveland Clinic’s ACO achieved $24 million in shared savings from Medicare in the most recent year of available data — the best performance for any first-year ACO and the 6th best nationally among all Shared Savings Program participants — and a model for success in care affordability.

Research and Innovations
Lerner Research Institute

The ultimate goal for Cleveland Clinic research? Find cures faster. Team science is the future. Turning scientific discoveries into better patient care happens faster when scientists, clinicians, engineers, mathematicians and others work together. Here at Lerner Research Institute, we’ve already started. Together with big data, our physicians are learning how to treat each person uniquely — not like everybody else. That’s precision medicine. Lerner Research Lab

Robotic Cell Seeker

Cellular therapies are on the brink of revolutionizing treatment for cancer and other challenging diseases, but scientists need precise and accurate devices for sampling, transferring or deleting specific cells and colonies. Cleveland Clinic researchers led by George Muschler, MD, of the Lerner Research Institute, have helped develop a new robotic device that scans and identifies cells or clusters of cells of interest and locates them in 3-D space. It can position cells for selective biopsy, removal or transplant. It will advance patient care through better diagnostics and targeted therapeutics.

Ex Vivo Organ Preservation

Ten patients have received liver transplants to date as part of a “first-in-human” trial using ex vivo normothermic machine perfusion. These are the first instances in the world that livers have been preserved at physiologic temperature using a noncommercial device. John Etterling, of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine, was instrumental in developing the device and making it small, light and portable — key features for its successful use in the field. The technology could reduce and potentially even eliminate mortality on the waiting list. Ex Vivo Liver Transplant

Better Prostate Cancer Test

Urologists in the Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute have developed a new test to detect prostate cancer. The test is called IsoPSA. Results from an ongoing multicenter clinical trial indicate that it can detect prostate cancer more precisely than current tests, by identifying molecular changes in the prostate specific antigen (PSA) protein. The study found that IsoPSA can also differentiate between high-risk and low-risk disease, as well as benign conditions. Eric Klein, MD, Chair of the Glickman Urological & Kidney Institute, is principal investigator of the trial. Blood Cells

“Teaching Those Who Serve”

The Education Institute operates one of the nation’s largest graduate medical education programs, with almost 2,000 residents and fellows in 2016 and achieving a board pass rate of 93 percent. The Education Institute provided more than 1,500 continuing medical education activities — in person, online and around the world. The Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine received more than 1,796 applications, with applicant MCAT scores equivalent to those of Harvard, Yale and Johns Hopkins medical schools.

Health Education Campus

Interprofessional education is the goal of the Health Education Campus, now under construction on Cleveland Clinic’s main campus. When it opens in summer 2019, it will be the new home of the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine, Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Medicine, the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, the CWRU School of Dental Medicine, as well as allied health education. An associated community dental clinic is being built as part of the project. Cleveland Clinic Health Education Campus

Virtual Reality Anatomy

Anatomy classes on the new Cleveland Clinic and Case Western Reserve Health Education Campus will be conducted using Microsoft HoloLens technology. The virtual reality program provides detailed, 3-D models of human anatomy based on real patients’ MRIs. Students will be able to isolate anything from individual organs to whole systems, and view the body from any angle. Case Western Reserve University was the first university to partner with Microsoft to test HoloLens’ potential. Microsoft Hololens
