5/27/15 – Ever considered having your practice accredited by ACRO?

As part of its mission ACRO strives to ensure the highest quality care for radiation therapy patients and promote success in the practice of radiation oncology. In 1995, ACRO developed a practice accreditation program as a voluntary process in which your peers identify standards indicative of a quality practice, and a practice audit is conducted to assure that these standards are met. The ACRO accreditation program has undergone periodic revisions to reflect clinical and scientific advances within the field. The most recent in-depth review carried out in 2010 resulted in major changes to the process by introducing online case submissions with online review by disease site specific team members and a quicker turnaround time for the full accreditation process, while still including onsite visits by physics and administrative surveyors. ACRO Accreditation is the only US accrediting body that is ISO 9001 certified and to have undergone an external audit to assure HIPAA/HITECH compliance. Accreditation by ACRO is both time and cost efficient and will distinguish your practice in the eyes of your patients and medical colleagues.

5/20/15 – ACRO 2015 was a huge success! Make sure to attend next year's meeting!

The 25th ACRO Annual Meeting held in Washington, D.C., last week was a huge success! The 275 attendees reported that the presentations and debates were on the cutting edge of radiation oncology, yet practical enough to return to their practices ready to implement much of what they learned. ACRO's goal is to present a detailed and intimate annual meeting that allows for in-depth discussions on the latest in radiation oncology, and that is exactly what it was. As one happy participant said as she was leaving the conference, "This was the best rad onc conference I have ever attended." This was also the first year when members, and nonmembers, were able to take part virtually as all plenary sessions were "live streamed" in HD via the Internet, and for which CME credits were available. We hope that even more ACRO members will make use of this next year if they cannot attend the meeting live.
