Kaiser Permanente Colorado's Institute for Health Research joined the University of Colorado Cancer Center in 2010. Kaiser Permanente brings a large group of cancer health outcomes researchers and cancer health service providers into the CU Cancer Center consortium.
Investigators with Kaiser Permanente's Institute for Health Research are conducting cutting-edge cancer research in patient-centered communications, health services and comparative effectiveness research. They have a large, NCI-funded cancer health communications center that does research into improving how we talk to patients about cancer.
Kaiser Permanente is also helping to lead an NCI-supported consortium of managed care organizations conducting research on how cancer is prevented and managed in health care systems.
