Dreyer Medical Clinic has received the distinction of being recognized by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification Program, an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO).
The QOPI Certification Program provides a three-year certification for outpatient hematology/oncology practices that meet the highest standards for quality cancer care.
Dreyer is only the third health care organization in Illinois to earn this certification.
“We’re extremely proud to receive this certification. It further demonstrates Dreyer’s commitment to providing the best care we can to all of our patients,” said Anil N. Keswani, M.D., Dreyer’s Vice President of Medical Management.
QOPI is a voluntary self-assessment and improvement program launched by ASCO in 2006 to help hematology/oncology and medical oncology practices assess the quality of the care they provide to patients. The certification is the first program of its kind for oncology in the United States. Practices achieve certification by demonstrating the highest standards of care. The certificate designates those practices that not only scored high on the key QOPI quality measures, but meet rigorous safety measures established by ASCO and the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS).
