Dispatch features OhioHealth Research and Innovation Institute on Business section front page

Fantastic article in Sunday’s Columbus Dispatch about OhioHealth’s unique tech transfer and commercialization program. And a few more BioOhio members (MID, Linebacker, and JointVue) get some love in the article’s sidebar.

The inventions range from a high-tech 3-D joint scanner to a low-tech yet highly sanitary toilet-seat lifter, and the inventors range from a top-flight surgeon to a part-time shuttle-bus driver.

But in the end, the result is the same at the OhioHealth Research and Innovation Institute: “This is a benefit to the community,” said John Niles, director of the institute.

The institute takes employee ideas and puts them to work, building on research and innovation activities that are conducted at OhioHealth hospitals, which include Riverside Methodist and Grant Medical Center.
