Practice Quality Improvement (PQI): Radiation Oncology (Revised 12-12-19)
Modified on: Fri, 13 Dec, 2019 at 11:56 AM
R-O PEER™ offers radiation oncologists and M-P PEER™ offers medical physicists the opportunity to fulfill Part IV, Evaluation of Performance in Practice for Maintenance of Certification (MOC), for the American Board of Radiology (ABR) through the Radiation Oncology Practice Accreditation Program. R-O and ACR M-P PEER™, the ACR’s Practice Quality Improvement (PQI) program, is offered as part of the ROPA Program and is part of the chart review during the ROPA site survey. This PQI program does not require the submission of additional cases, but there must be at least two cases per physician participating in R-O PEER™.
Once your practice has been accredited, a final report will be issued to each participating radiation oncologist and medical physicist. If any corrective action measures are identified, the final report will request additional documentation that demonstrates that these have been appropriately addressed. When this documentation is submitted and reviewed, a certificate of satisfactory completion of the PQI project will be issued to each participating radiation oncologist and medical physicist.
R-O PEER™ is available on the ROPA website application (Part 1) or on the ACR website by paper application. All radiation oncologists interested in participating in R-O PEER™ must submit their application and payment along with the ROPA electronic application before the date of the scheduled site survey.
ACR M-P PEER™ is available on the ACR website by paper application (Individual ACR M-P PEER™ or Group ACR M-P PEER™). All medical physicists interested in participating in ACR M-P PEER™ must submit their application and payment along with the ROPA electronic application before the date of the scheduled site survey.
