The Hutchinson Institute for Cancer Outcomes Research (HICOR) is an innovative research institute leveraging the scientific excellence and oncology expertise of Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. HICOR harnesses healthcare economics to reduce the cost and improve the effectiveness of cancer prevention, treatment and therapy.
HICOR is led by Scott Ramsey M.D., Ph.D, member in the Cancer Prevention Program in the Public Health Sciences Division at the Hutchinson Center. He is also a Professor in the School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy, and Institute for Public Health Genetics at University of Washington.
Dr. Ramsey leads a multidisciplinary team devoted improving outcomes for patients. “The institute will serve as a new model for partnerships with all stakeholders in the cancer research and care delivery enterprise,” Ramsey said. “Success in this effort will result in broader use of evidence-based care, more efficient and effective models of health care delivery, and reducing the overall burden of cancer in our region.”
