Abstract:

It seems clear that future innovations in healthcare will need to demonstrate value by providing evidence regarding both medical outcomes and cost. This, in turn, will require new approaches to clinical trials. The Hutchinson Initiative in Cancer Outcomes Research (HICOR) is an example of such an approach. Organized at the regional level, the Initiative links payers, practitioners and provider organizations in a way that produces insightful data and allows experiments within the established care system.
