Modified on: Fri, 13 Dec, 2019 at 2:26 PM
At the completion of the accreditation review process, the ACR will issue a confidential final report to the radiation oncologist who requested your on-site survey. The report is generally sent 8-12 weeks following the survey. This peer review document is based on the findings of the surveyors, as well as information provided in the initial application and verified by the surveyors. The accreditation report includes:
Comparison of facility/staffing data with the accredited facilities data
Evaluation of facility’s compliance with parameters, technical standards, and program requirements from application information and review by surveyors
Surveyor comments on individual case reviews
Specific recommendations for improvement
Your radiation oncologist will receive email notification when a final report has been issued. He or she will be instructed to log in to the ROPA database to view the report.
Marketing Your Accreditation
Once accreditation has been achieved, the ACR will send the facility a certificate suitable for framing and a URL to an exclusive, customized online marketing kit to assist in promoting this success within its community and to patients and referring physicians. The online marketing toolkit materials include a press release template and patient education brochures, as well as a modality-specific gold seal that may be used on the accredited unit, reports, facility letterhead, website, advertising, etc.
In addition, all sites fully accredited by the ACR (and those under review) will be listed by accreditation program and state on the ACR’s Accreditation Website.
