Who We Are
The Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI) is an independent, nonprofit health care improvement organization that is a collaboration of medical groups, hospitals, nonprofit health plans, employers, and consumers to bring innovation and urgency to improve health, the patient experience and quality, and affordability of care (the Triple Aim). ICSI is comprised of 50+ medical groups representing 8,000 physicians and is supported by member dues, sponsorship by nonprofit health plans and contracts/grants.
Our mission is to champion the cause of health care quality and to accelerate improvement in the value of the health care delivered to the populations served. ICSI’s vision is that we will be a collaboration that is deemed essential by its members for their improvement of health care and deemed essential by our community as a trusted voice for quality in health care. We accomplish this by the unique collaboration and trust built among our diverse stakeholders, by being grounded in evidence-based medicine, and by tackling and solving some of our community’s most complex health and health care system problems.
Our success stems from our stakeholders’ belief that a collaborative approach allows us to go further to address and solve complex specific problems, and avoids unnecessary duplication of efforts.
