Commit to Excellence in Cancer Care
The QOPI Certification Program provides a three-year certification for outpatient hematology-oncology practices. QCP validates processes that demonstrate to patients, payors, and the medical community, a practice’s commitment to quality.
What are QOPI Certified practices saying about QOPI Certification?
“Oncology practices that are committed to quality and safety are those that provide the most optimal cancer care,” said ASCO Past President Sandra M. Swain, MD, FACP. “The QOPI Certification Program helps practices determine whether they are providing the best treatment and care possible to their patients, and demonstrates a commitment to excellence and ongoing quality improvement in the hematology-oncology outpatient practice.”
ASCO is conquering cancer through research, education, and promotion of the highest quality patient care. The primary mission of the QOPI Certification process is practice improvement. Benchmarking performance against performance thresholds can assist practitioners in achieving specific improvement goals. The process of preparing for and completing the Site Assessment stimulates internal discussion regarding opportunities for practice improvement, team collaboration, and implementation of improved systems.
Why is Continuous Quality Improvement in Oncology Care Important?
Over the past 20 years the treatment of oncology patients has progressed from the inpatient to the outpatient arena. Delivery of the increasing number of therapies and supportive medications requires attention to detail and a broad knowledge base. There is growing appreciation that as our interventions become more complex, standardization of care improves patient outcomes and increases safety.
“As oncologists, our goal is to provide the highest levels of care and life quality for our patients. ASCO’s quality programs are designed by leaders in the profession, and give practices the ability to continuously improve the quality of care they provide. This culture of excellence will be especially important as we enter the era of personalized medicine.”
