RO-ILS is a key milestone in ASTRO's Target Safely campaign, a patient protection plan to improve safety and quality for radiation oncology. PSOs, established by the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 (PSQIA), facilitate the reporting and analysis of safety events by offering legal and confidentiality protections to U.S.-based practices. ASTRO has contracted with Clarity PSO, one of the earliest organizations to be federally qualified as a PSO, to build the online interface and to provide the affiliated patient safety services outlined in PSQIA.

RO-ILS began with an initial testing and evaluation period in September 2013 with a select number of testing sites who have served as early adopters of the system. The early adopters include a variety of practice settings located across the country: large academic centers, community hospitals and freestanding clinics. In order to ensure a comprehensive assessment of the program, early adopters experienced the full participation processfrom signing the necessary contract with Clarity PSO to RO-ILS training, data submission and analysis.

RO-ILS also includes a Practice Quality Improvement (PQI) template as a free companion to the RO-ILS portal. The RO-ILS PQI template is qualified for physicians and physicists by t
