Cleveland Clinic Innovation Alliance overview

In June 2013, Cleveland Clinic Innovation (CCI) and Marshfield Clinic announced an agreement to collaborate through the CCI led Healthcare Innovation Alliance program. The goal of the Alliance is to benefit patients through rapid technology identification, development and commercialization of intellectual property. 

The Innovation Alliance is a joint effort of CCI, Marshfield Clinic and all other Alliance members to identify areas of collaboration on multiple fronts. The first collaboration is for Marshfield Clinic to utilize CCI's comprehensive technology and commercialization services infrastructure.

CCI will be providing Marshfield Clinic support to assist the Applied Sciences team in tapping into the creative talents of Clinic associates and manage an idea-to-market strategy and process.
