Arizona Oncology has achieved a four-year accreditation from the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s (ASTRO) Accreditation Program for Excellence (APEx®). APEx is an independent radiation oncology practice accreditation program based on a set of sixteen evidence-based standards of radiation oncology practice. These standards are focused on five pillars of patient care:
- The process of care
- The radiation oncology team
- Quality management
- Patient-centered care
What an APEx Accreditation means for patients is that Arizona Oncology is committed to high standards of safety and quality in radiation oncology. Patient-centered care is our top goal by promoting effective communication, coordinating treatment, and engaging patients and their families as partners in care.
Arizona Oncology received the four-year accreditation for radiation oncology services on May 1, 2017 from ASTRO.
