Clinical innovation, enabled by interactions between physician innovators and industry, has been critical to many important discoveries leading to improved patient care. Due to the rising concerns around conflicts of interest and resulting practices that inhibit the interaction between physicians and industry development partners, that important ongoing source of improved patient care is threatened. In the session we’ll touch on practical impacts of clinical open innovation and efforts to mitigate harm as well as minimize errors of commission and omission.
Keynote speaker Dr. Richard B. Gunderman, Chancellor’s Professor of Radiology, Pediatrics, Medical Education, Philosophy, Liberal Arts, Philanthropy, and Medical Humanities and Health Studies at Indiana University, will present ideas on the four common interactions including research, education, innovation, and commercialization. Dr. Gunderman be followed by a panel of industry experts including:
- Sheryl Conley, President & Chief Executive Officer, OrthoWorx
- Alexander M. Djuricich, Associate Professor of Clinical Medicine, Indiana University
