Cheshire Medical’s cancer center recertified

Norris Cotton Cancer Center at Cheshire Medical Center has received re-certification by the QOPI Certification Program, a subsidiary of the Association for Clinical Oncology and an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology.

The center first achieved certification in 2013.

QOPI is a voluntary self-assessment and improvement program launched by the society in 2006 to help hematology-oncology and medical oncology practices assess the quality of the care they provide to patients.

To become QOPI certified, practices have to submit to an evaluation of their entire practice and documentation standards.
