Since its launch in June 2014, more than 250 facilities across the country have joined RO-ILS: Radiation Oncology Incident Learning System® to contribute patient safety data to the only medical specialty society-sponsored radiation oncology incident learning system. 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. Participation in RO-ILS is free and provides U.S.-based practices access to a secure, web-based portal and the ability to send data to a federally listed Patient Safety Organization (PSO).

“Our field can use RO-ILS to learn from our collective practice, where the combined experiences and insights can be pooled and studied, increasing knowledge that we can all apply to improve patient care."
