Each year the Cleveland Clinic determines what the top 10 disruptors in healthcare will be for the following year. The criteria to be considered a disruptor is that it has to be so innovative that it could change healthcare in a significant way in the next year.

Approximately 150 to 200 Cleveland Clinic physicians from each of the institutes are interviewed for their suggestions of the top 10 innovations they think will be a disruptor. Venture capitalists and members of the media also get surveyed about what they think will be the top innovation of the next year. From the large list, 300 to 400 suggestions are narrowed down to 150. After that, 20 physicians meet and vote the lists down to the top 10. The results are the Cleveland Clinic’s top 10 medical innovations of 2018.

The top 10 medical innovations of 2018 were announced at this year’s Cleveland Clinic Medical Innovation Summit that took place Oct. 23-25 in Cleveland. From chemotherapy-related hair loss prevention to the closed-loop insulin delivery system, here are the top 10 predicted medical disruptors of 2018.
