As part of a leading quality improvement collaborative, ICSI members can:

Achieve the Triple Aim
ICSI initiatives are designed to improve population health, the care experience, and the affordability of care. Participating in and/or learning from them helps organizations achieve their own Triple Aim goals.
Example
ICSI’s high-tech diagnostic imaging (HTDI) initiative is estimated to have prevented 100 Minnesotans from getting cancer, enabled shared decision-making, and reduced HTDI claims $30 million annually.
“ICSI believes the best way for providers and health plans to improve health, the quality and experience of care and the cost of care is to collaborate on the goals and alignment, and compete on execution.”

Pete Benner, former ICSI Board Member
Integrate Care
ICSI members are often the first to learn how to implement innovative models to successfully integrate primary and specialty care, and behavioral health and primary care.
Example
DIAMOND changed how patients with depression are treated in primary care. It was the foundation for health care home and its model is being spread across nine states to manage both mental and physical chronic diseases.
“Prior to DIAMOND, there were too many patients to follow up with in primary care. DIAMOND was a sea change in how to address depression in primary care.”

Mark Williams, MD, Psychiatrist, Mayo Clinic

Improve Staff Efficiency and Cost Effectiveness
Members build skills and capacities to effectively redesign and deliver evidence-based care in an effective manner.

Example
One member implementing ICSI’s HTDI decision-support approach reported a five-fold increase in staff productivity and the ability to reassign three FTEs to other needed areas.
“Using the HTDI decision support approach gives me helpful guidance without disrupting my usual workflow. Having this information available while with a patient in the exam room also supports shared decision-making.”

John Butler, MD, HealthPartners Medical Group
