Dr. Lichter Explains ASCOs Idea of Using Its Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) as a Solution to the SGR

Dr. Allen Lichter, CEO of ASCO, explains ASCO’s Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI) to be used as a solution to SGR. Dr. Lichter says that the plan uses quality and performance measurement as part of the basis for physician payment reform. “We need to monitor whether too little is being done and care is being inappropriately withheld, and that’s done through a robust quality monitoring system that’s accurate, that’s real time, that’s validated, and that physician’s believe in,” says Lichter.
