How Your Cancer-Care Team Measures Up
Our physicians, pharmacists and advanced practice providers combine diverse backgrounds with a shared commitment to excellence and positive outcomes. But don’t just take our word for it. From national certification in oncologist-led measures of quality to consistent recognition in our Central Jersey communities, our cancer and hematology treatment teams are dedicated to only the highest quality in care.
Nationally Recognized Standards of Excellence
With participation in a certification program that promotes benchmark standards in over 100 measures of quality and accreditation that exceeds national standards, our centers continually strive for excellence.
To help oncology practices nurture cultures of ongoing advancement, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) launched the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI®). Certification in QOPI® means that we actively and continually enhance our processes and performance of facilities and providers. To become certified, we’ve met or exceeded benchmarks set by top-tier cancer care centers across the country. And this level of care is not one and done but reevaluated every three years by oncology experts. Here at Astera Cancer Care, we’re proud to say we’ve been QOPI certified since 2013.
Since 1986, The Accreditation Commission for Health Care (ACHC) has been evaluating medical centers for performance and quality of patient care. To maintain ACHC accreditation, surveyors look at healthcare organizations’ policies, procedures, and regulatory compliance every three years. ACHC surveyors are experts in the same fields they evaluate and accreditation offers a recognized symbol of excellence that shows a commitment to higher levels of care.
The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses
In memory of the incredible, compassionate care Patrick Barnes, who suffered from an auto-immune disease, received from nurses before his undue passing at 33 years old, his family created The DAISY Award. Practices that participate in the national and international program recognize extraordinary nursing ability on an ongoing basis through a nomination process and honoree awards. Anyone, from a patient to a doctor to a fellow nurse, may nominate incredible clinical and compassionate nursing care.
Community Recognition since 2017
With 12 locations throughout Central Jersey and Pennsylvania, we take pride in the communities we care for and the recognitions they have offered us. Astera Cancer Care has been recognized by New Jersey Monthly, NJ TopDocs, Jersey’s Best and Castle Connolly Medical for local expertise. We hold designations as Top Doctors, Top Cancer Doctors and Top Doctors for Women’s Health from these peer-reviewed medical directories.
