Radiation Oncology Practice (ROP) Definition

For purposes of the APEx Program, an ROP is defined as a medical practice offering radiation therapy services, utilizing the services of interdisciplinary professionals under the direction of a board-certified radiation oncologist. An ROP may be a multi-site practice (e.g., a “main campus” with satellites)

All of the following criteria will be used to determine if a multi-facility practice can apply for all sites to be covered by the same accreditation application:

  1. common policies and procedures for key evidence indicators;
  2. an individual or committee from within radiation oncology practice leadership who is responsible for overseeing the operations of the multi-facility practice, including the culture of safety;
  3. a medical director, who is a radiation oncologist, responsible for each facility; and
  4. all facilities located within a 50-mile radius of the main facility.
