Napa, California—May 25, 2016—Oncologists who achieve quality certification through the QOPI® Certification Program will be eligible for up to a 10 percent discount on their malpractice insurance through a collaboration announced today between The Doctors Company and the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc. (ASCO®), and its wholly owned subsidiary, QOPI® Certification Program, LLC (QCP).
Physicians participating in outpatient hematology-oncology practices who receive the three-year Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®) Certification will be eligible for the discount on insurance from The Doctors Company. Eligible physicians who are in already-certified practices will be eligible to receive the discount on their next insurance renewal upon request.
“We are proud to collaborate with ASCO and QCP to recognize QOPI Certified practices that have demonstrated commitment to providing outstanding oncology care,” said Richard E. Anderson, MD, FACP, chairman and CEO of The Doctors Company. “Member programs like this support our mission to defend, protect, and reward the practice of good medicine.”
QOPI is a voluntary self-assessment and improvement program launched by ASCO in 2006 to help hematology-oncology and medical oncology practices assess the quality of care they provide to patients.
“We commend The Doctors Company for its recognition of QOPI Certification as a mark of excellence in quality cancer care,” said ASCO CEO Allen S. Lichter, MD, FASCO. “QOPI Certification demonstrates a practice’s commitment to providing the highest level of quality of care for their patients, and we are grateful to The Doctors Company for recognizing those physicians who achieve this high standard.”
