APEx in the COVID-19 Global Health Emergency - Update September 21
Thank you for your interest in APEx - Accreditation Program for Excellence®. The safety of our members and the patients you serve remains of utmost importance to us.
As states are continue to modify restrictions, ASTRO has carefully considered how to resume facility visits. If your practice’s facility visit has been on hold, we will be reaching out to you, where appropriate, to begin scheduling the surveyors based on your ability to receive visitors.
We continue to offer extensions to APEx-accredited practices who have completed the Self-Assessment before their expiration dates but whose facility visit cannot be accommodated during the public health emergency.
If you are thinking about applying for APEx, ASTRO staff is offering virtual office hours throughout the month of October. ASTRO staff will answer your questions about the program and help you get started. Schedule a meeting date and time now, and ASTRO staff will send a personalized link for your practice to join the discussion.
Also, ASTRO is offering a partial payment option ― with half the fee paid upon submission of the application and the balance due before finalizing your facility visit ― through the end of this year.
We hope you continue to stay well and look forward to serving you in the future.
