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 over 150 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. Practices who participate in QOPI and who are QOPI Certified may also qualify for Improvement Activity points for Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) reporting.
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 2008 through 2018 on over 190 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.
