The Good, The Great, & The Innovative

A computer that assists with personalized sedation. A prosthetic retinal system for the blind. A biomarker that predicts future risk of heart disease. Incredible breakthroughs are made in the world of medicine every year and these are just a few innovations that are considered to be some of the most impactful in healthcare this year. Cleveland Clinic, one of the top academic medical centers in the U.S., uses mobile charge capture to optimize its time and resources. This high level of efficiency allows the organization to continue to be a leading innovator in healthcare and research.

Each year, a team of clinical leaders and researchers from every major medical specialty at the Cleveland Clinic develops a list of innovations that are considered to have the biggest impact on healthcare for the upcoming year. To receive consideration, the nominated technologies have to meet an extensive list of criteria: They must provide a significant clinical impact and benefit to patients, have high profitability of commercial success, and have considerable human interest in its application. The innovations must also be in or past the clinical trial stage and be available on the market within the coming year.

Here is the top 10 list of innovations for 2014:

#1. Retinal Prosthesis
