Institute for Cancer Care Innovation

A collaborative effort among physicians, nurses, patients, caregivers and administrators that focuses on innovative approaches to constantly improving the value of MD Anderson cancer care.

Who We Are

The Institute for Cancer Care Innovation studies new and existing models of cancer care delivery and reimbursement. ICCI has based its programs around the principles of value-based health care delivery that focuses on the outcomes and costs of care. 

ICCI, formerly known as the Institute for Cancer Care Excellence, was created in 2008 to demonstrate the value of MD Anderson's research driven multidisciplinary care and has been at the forefront of cancer care nationally and internationally for its innovative approaches to measuring of the value of our cancer care delivery system.

With programs designed to measure the outcomes and costs of the care we provide, ICCI provides essential strategies for maintaining our cancer center’s preeminent position as the nation's No.1 provider of cancer care in the United States.

Key Initiatives

 

  • Evaluating which value-based outcomes are most important to cancer patients and identifying which outcomes measures are significant for patients and providers
  • Using TDABC and new costing methodologies to better assess value at MD Anderson Cancer Center
  • Creating bundled payments for major disease types in order to meet a changing health care reimbursement landscape
  • Fostering the better use of electronic medical records and electronic health records for both patients and providers
  • Integrating more useful and comprehensive electronic medical and health data into cancer care
  • Working toward incorporating technology into patient experiences to provide better communication between patients and their families and providers
