Allegiance Oncology Achieves National Distinctions
Allegiance Health has been certified through the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative® (QOPI). An affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, QOPI is a voluntary self-assessment and improvement program that helps hematology-oncology and medical oncology practices evaluate the quality of care they provide. QOPI Certification is awarded to cancer programs that meet or exceed national quality benchmarks and demonstrate commitment to quality care.
During the process for QOPI certification, Allegiance Health successfully completed an on-site review of policies and procedures that affect patient care and safety. Among the areas evaluated were chemotherapy preparation and administration, patient monitoring, patient education and emergency preparedness.
The Allegiance cancer program has also achieved full accreditation from the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer (CoC). According to the CoC, this accreditation is considered a “seal of approval” and a formal acknowledgment of Allegiance Health’s “commitment to providing high-quality cancer care to [its] community and patients with cancer.”
