HICOR Reports

Community Cancer Care in Washington State Report

The Community Cancer Care Report is a public report that shows clinic-level cancer care quality measures linked to cost. Featuring information on more than 25 clinics throughout Washington state, this report represents a multi-year collaborative effort with insurers, providers and patients. The report allows providers to examine regional trends and identify opportunities to improve cancer care delivery. 

2018 Report

In 2018, HICOR published the first publicly accessible statewide report showing clinic-level quality measures linked to cost in cancer care. The report, which includes data for cancer patients covered by Washington state’s largest public and commercial insurance providers, is designed to encourage the sharing of best practices and stimulate development of innovative approaches to delivering cancer care in ways that improve the quality of care and lower costs.

2016–2017 Annual Report

The work at the Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research at Fred Hutch is driven by a vision to improve outcomes and reduce costs for cancer patients and families. Engaging patient partners in the research process is central to this vision. This year HICOR was fortunate to work with a number of talented patients and patient advocates as they opened enrollment for a national clinical trial, conceptualized novel interventions to improve cancer care, and expanded our performance measurement program.

2015-2016 Annual Report

The HICOR team is committed to finding solutions to reduce the economic burden of cancer for patients, families and society. We view this critical issue through the lens of value — asking ourselves how our work can contribute to ensuring that patients receive the highest quality care and the best possible results without the financial devastation that too often accompanies a cancer diagnosis. We started with the simple yet vital concept of measurement. Could we gather and analyze the data necessary to create a picture of how cancer care is delivered in our community? The short answer, built on the hard work and expertise of our data and clinical analytics team, is yes.

Topics include cancer and bankruptcy, enhancing the impact of clinical trials, and economic perspectives on precision oncology.
