Why choosing an APEx-accredited radiation oncology facility is important for patients.

The ASTRO Accreditation Program for Excellence (APEx) is an independent radiation oncology practice accreditation program. The program is based on a comprehensive set of sixteen standards of radiation oncology practice, organized around five pillars of patient care:

  1. The process of care
  2. The radiation oncology team
  3. Safety
  4. Quality management
  5. Patient-centered care

When you choose an APEx-accredited facility, you know that:

  • Y our facility has voluntarily gone through a rigorous review process by trained radiation oncology professionals.
  • Y our facility’s policies and procedures have been evaluated using objective, verifiable expectations for performance in radiation oncology.
  • Y our facility is committed to the highest standards of safety and quality in the practice of radiation oncology.
  • Y our facility practices patient-centered care by promoting effective communication, coordination of treatment and engaging patients and their families as partners in care.
“Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution.” —William A. Foster
