ASCO Quality Programs
ASCO recognizes the importance of integrating continuous quality improvement into patient-centered clinical practice, and has collaborated with the world's leading cancer care experts to develop two key quality programs:
Why is Continuous Quality Improvement in Oncology Care Important?
The quality of the care that an oncology patient receives is one of the most important aspects of a successful treatment outcome. Yet, how do you know if the quality of the care that you deliver is at its highest potential? Most oncologists are required to develop their own quality measurement and improvement programs, or choose from existing programs that make it difficult, if not impossible, to effectively measure and compare their care to other practices in a continuous and meaningful way.
How Can QOPI® Help Your Practice's Quality Improvement?
ASCO's Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) gives you the quality measurement and improvement tools that you need. QOPI was developed by world-renowned practicing oncologists and quality experts, using clinical guidelines and published standards, such as the National Initiative on Cancer Care Quality (NICCQ), ASCO/NCCN Quality Measures, and ASTRO/ASCO/AMA PCPI Oncology Measures.
