ICSI convenes diverse partnerships across systems, organized around particular issues in identified communities. This work generally challenges the status quo. Some outcomes of these partnerships include:
- Improving patient engagement and equity
- Reduction in avoidable hospital readmissions and unnecessary high-tech diagnostic imaging
- Development of quality metrics and payment changes for Minnesota to benefit population health
ICSI staff conducted a high-level environmental scan to identify the trends, innovations, and disruptions that may impact Minnesota health care delivery systems, both in primary and specialty care, as we work toward alternative payment model readiness. Each paper includes discussion questions that organizations can use to better understand their current state and create a vision for their future. Learn more.

ICSI is working to engage patients, citizens, and communities in deeper ways than before, so that together we can co-create the future of health and health care. We solicit input from patients in all that we do to help advance patient-centered care, including family and cultural considerations. Learn more.
ICSI continues its focus on the Triple Aim of better health, better care and lower cost. Health Care Value is within the third of these aims. We address this challenge by working to lower cost while simultaneously improving outcomes, thereby increasing health care value. Learn more.
Emerging evidence suggests that addressing health-related social needs through clinical-community alignments can improve health outcomes, patient experience and reduce costs. Through various partnerships, projects and grant work, ICSI is engaged in efforts that support clinical-community collaboration. Learn more.
