Community Oncology Alliance Announces Launch of Accreditation Pilot for OMH

Ten oncology practices around the nation will initiate their accreditation process this year, which includes an on-site survey bu the Commission on Cancer.

The Community Oncology Alliance, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to preserving access to community cancer care, announced the pilot of a national launch of an accreditation program for the Oncology Medical Home. This accreditation program is the result of a collaborative effort with a steering committee of cancer care organizations, advocacy organizations, insurers, and the Commission on Cancer (CoC). During the first quarter of this year, ten practices will pilot accreditation standards by demonstrating their compliance with standards and guidelines for this program. This includes an on-site survey by the CoC.
