The mission of RO-ILS is to facilitate safer and higher quality care in radiation oncology by providing a mechanism for shared learning in a secure and non-punitive environment. In the past year, ASTRO has surpassed its goal of enrolling more than 500 facilities in RO-ILS.

  • Within a year, more than doubled the total number of events in the database to more than 8,000 events.
  • Developed a dynamic dashboard to encourage practices to analyze their own internal data.
  • Developed new resources for practices implementing the program within their clinic.
