The Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) is a quality program designed for outpatient-oncology practices to foster a culture of self-examination and improvement. Participating practices can report on evidence-based quality measures and receive individual performance scores by practice, site, and provider, as well as benchmarked scores aggregated from all participating practices.
Practices use this performance data to identify, develop and implement quality improvement initiatives leading to better care and better outcomes for their patients.
Participating in QOPI is the first step in becoming QOPI Certified. QOPI Certified practices may also qualify for Improvement Activity points for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) Reporting.
See the list of 2021 Improvement Activities.
QOPI is an ASCO member benefit available at no charge to oncology practices with at least one active ASCO member.
QOPI Steering Group
The QOPI Steering Group—consisting of practicing oncologists, health service researchers, nurses and other leaders in oncology—sets the strategic direction for and guides implementation of the QOPI program.
Founder and Original QOPI Alpha Group
This small group of volunteers committed to quality in oncology conceptualized and piloted the first outpatient oncology assessment program in 2002.
QOPI has accumulated data sets from 2015 through 2020 on retired and current quality measures with aggregate data from hundreds of oncology practices. This data can be used for your practice’s internal quality improvement projects, as well as for research studies and publications.
