IOS Quality Award Program

The Iowa Oncology Society (IOS) has established a Quality Award Program to award funds to assist member practices in becoming ASCO QOPI Certified.

IOS has established a way to assist its smaller member practices by providing a funding program to help complete QOPI certification requirements. However, the long-term goal of the program is for all practices in Iowa to become QOPI certified. The program will be evaluated on an annual basis to determine if funding is available for continuation and/or expansion.

IOS will award funds through the IOS Quality Award Program to eligible member practices based on the requirements listed below:

  • An eligible oncology practice is defined as:
    • 1—6 FTE medical oncologist(s)/hematologist(s),
    • No more than 5 additional office locations, and
    • At least one physician in the practice who is a Regular member of IOS and is a current ASCO member.
  • The practice must be willing to enter into the certification process and must register for ASCO’s QOPI.**
  • Applicant must complete and submit the online IOS Quality Award Program application and submit a W–9 form by email to *Note: Proof of registration for QOPI is required.
  • Applicant must agree to complete a 6–month evaluation from IOS to help determine the effectiveness of the program.

**NOTE: If you applied for or received QOPI certification in calendar year 2016, you are eligible to complete an award form to be considered for reimbursement.
