CoC accreditation challenges cancer programs to enhance the care they provide by addressing patient-centered needs and measuring the quality of the care they deliver against national standards. CoC accreditation provides value through improved patient outcomes across all domains of care: access and service, satisfaction and well-being, quality of care and cancer outcomes. CoC accredited cancer programs are dedicated to providing the best in patient-centered care.

Centra Alan B. Pearson Regional Cancer Center's Lynchburg Hematology Oncology Department is also certified by the QOPI® Certification Program LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, Inc. (ASCO®). The QOPI® Certification Program builds on ASCO’s Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®), providing a three-year certification for outpatient hematology-oncology practices that meet nationally recognized standards for quality cancer care. 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 the care they provide to patients.

APEx - Accreditation Program for Excellence® was developed by radiation oncology professionals from the world’s premier radiation oncology society to recognize facilities that deliver safe, high-quality care to their patients. Radiation oncology practices that earn accreditation through APEx demonstrate the systems, personnel, policies and procedures needed to meet APEx Standards.

The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) standards for accreditation address the full continuum of cancer—from prevention to survivorship and end-of-life care—while addressing both survival and quality of life. The NAPBC standards address the following domains:

  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best care and treatment options available
  • Access to breast-specific information, education, and support
  • Breast center data collection on quality indicators for subspecialties involved in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Ongoing monitoring and improvement of care
  • Information about participation in clinical trials and new treatment options
