|Institute for Research & Innovation|
MultiCare has been involved with clinical research studies for over 25 years, initially focusing on the area of oncology. Over time, the research program expanded into a portfolio of Phase I - IV clinical studies spanning a diverse base of diseases and medical conditions. The MultiCare Institute for Research & Innovation, formed in 2010, has gathered all of the research efforts in our health care system into a single program.
The Institute conducts both clinical trials and outcomes-based research with MultiCare-employed physicians, as well as physicians practicing independently in the community. We participate in research through a number of mechanisms including federal, industry, and investigator-initiated studies. MultiCare also performs clinical studies in conjunction with the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA).
