Quality & Guidelines

ASCO's Institute for Quality (iQ) was established to promote quality, value, and accountability in cancer care and to enhance the Society’s longstanding goal of improving the quality of care in the field of oncology. In keeping with this goal, ASCO is committed to offering oncology providers the resources they need to deliver high-quality cancer care to every patient. Here you will find the latest information on CancerLinQ™, the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®), QOPI Certification Program™, Health Information Technology (HIT), Virtual Learning Collaborative, Quality Training Program, and ASCO Guidelines. 

As quality measurement increasingly plays a role in physician reimbursement and quality improvement is incorporated into maintenance of certification, oncology professionals will all need to be rowing in the same direction. The tools provided by ASCO’s Institute for Quality are here to meet those needs. Physicians whose practices have achieved QOPI® Certification now can receive a premium discount of up to 10% on malpractice insurance premiums from The Doctors Company.
