CTCA Gets Major Re-Certification


From Special Reports

Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), Atlanta has received re-certification by the QOPI® Certification Program, a subsidiary of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO®). The program provides a three-year certification for outpatient hematology-oncology practices that meet standards for quality and safety in cancer care. This designation arrives on the heels of a three-year accreditation renewal from The Joint Commission earlier this year.

In applying for re-certification, CTCA Atlanta had to meet the program’s requirements, which includes participating in a voluntary comprehensive site assessment against clearly specified standards that are consistent with national guidelines and being successful in meeting the standards and objectives of the QOPI® Certification Program.

Core standards in areas of treatment include:

  • Creating a safe environment—staffing, competencies, and general policy
  • Treatment planning, patient consent, and education
  • Staff training and education
  • Monitoring and assessment of patient well-being

QOPI® and the QOPI® Certification Program are projects dedicated to innovative quality improvement programs. For more information, please visit: https://practice.asco.org/quality-improvement/quality-programs.
