"The two words ‘information’ and ‘communication’ are often used interchangeably, but they signify quite different things. Information is giving out; communication is getting through." -- Sydney J. Harris

MNCM and ICSI Combination Exploration

Over the last six months, MN Community Measurement (MNCM) and the Institute for Clinical Systems Improvement (ICSI) have been exploring the idea of merging into one organization. A formal workgroup was formed, which included joint stakeholders and both Boards of Directors, to evaluate this scenario. After careful consideration, it was decided that each organization would maintain separate, non-profit entities and continue to fulfill their own missions and visions.

MNCM and ICSI plan to focus on each of our expertise in the community and our long-standing partnership and joint commitment to achieving the Triple Aim in Minnesota. We hope to continue to work together on projects important to improving care in our community.
