Analysis of ASCO's QOPI® data finds significant improvement in performance on metrics for quality oncology care
Date:3/11/2013

tegories of quality measures (also known as QOPI modules; includes: core measures, symptom/toxicity management, care at end of life, non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and non-small cell lung cancer), which collectively include more than 150 measures.

ASCO Perspective
Sandra M. Swain, MD, FACP, ASCO President

"This study further shows that participation in quality assessment programs like QOPI should provide reassurance to people living with cancer that they are receiving high quality care. Nearly 600 practices in the U.S. are already participating in QOPI in part because it provides a systematic process, library of diverse quality measures, collection tool, and reliable information to assess the care they provide. QOPI is also the gateway to QOPI-Certification which recognizes practices that demonstrate performance on designated QOPI measures and meet certification standards for quality and safe care."
