The Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI) was founded in 1993 by HealthPartners Medical Group, the Mayo Clinic, and Park Nicollet Health Services. ICSI today is the Upper Midwest’s leading healthcare collaborative. It is funded by six Minnesota and Wisconsin health plans, and is comprised of 55 dues-paying medical groups and hospitals representing more than 9,000 physicians.
As an independent, non-profit organization, ICSI helps its members implement best clinical practices for their patients. ICSI also works to transform the healthcare system so members and sponsors can deliver higher quality and more affordable care. Its trusted collaborative processes have demonstrated ICSI’s ability to bring diverse stakeholders together to champion system-based improvements in healthcare.
