MUSIC (Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative)

The Michigan Urological Surgery Improvement Collaborative (MUSIC), established in 2011, is a physician-led quality improvement collaborative comprised of a consortium of urology practices in the state of Michigan. The collaborative is designed to evaluate and improve the quality and cost efficiency of prostate cancer care for men in Michigan.

The overall aims of the collaborative include, among others, evaluating and improving patterns of care in the radiographic staging of men with newly diagnosed prostate cancer, reducing biopsy-related complications and assessing repeat biopsy patterns, improving patient outcomes after radical prostatectomy, enhancing patient-centered decision making among men considering local therapy for early-stage prostate cancer, and understanding and reducing variation in the use of androgen deprivation therapy.
