QOPI Round 1 Now Open for Data Abstraction; Improve Quality Practice-Wide

January 28, 2020

The American Society of Clinical Oncology's (ASCO) Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Round 1 of reporting is open for data abstraction. Round 1 will close on June 5, 2020, and final reports will be available approximately four weeks after the round closes. To get started, go to the registration portal and log in.

A step-by-step QOPI round registration tutorial can be found on the QOPI Dashboard under “Round Trainings.” 

QOPI® is ASCO’s free, oncologist-led, practice-based quality assessment program, which is open to all practices with at least one ASCO member. The initiative has helped more than 1,000 practices to conduct self-examination and identify specific areas for quality improvement. Participating practices can report on more than 150 evidence-based quality measures through the easy-to-use collection tool and receive individual performance scores by practice, site, and provider, as well as benchmarked scores aggregated from all participating practices. The data and results can then be used to inform future quality improvement projects and initiatives.

QOPI® is available to member practices in all five U.S. territories, as well as in Argentina, Australia, Brazil, European Union (all countries), India, Mexico, Pakistan, Philippines, New Zealand, and Saudi Arabia. 

Continuing Education Credits

This is the third year in which QOPI has offered a specialized Fellowship Program Track. Fellowship programs can integrate QOPI participation into fellow activities to facilitate meeting Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) Common Program Requirements for Practice Based Learning, Quality Assessment, and Performance Improvement activities, as well as engage fellows in quality assessment, quality reporting, and performance improvement activities that will be required throughout their career. 

Additionally, all participants from practices who abstract a minimum of 25 charts for two consecutive rounds with QOPI can document their efforts in a new ASCO eLearning® course and be awarded:

  • 20 American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) Practice Assessment points
  • 20 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
  • 20 American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Continuing Education Units.

For all other non-physician members, Certificates of Participation are available upon request, which may be able to be applied toward re-licensure (dependent on licensing organization).
