APEx accreditation is a rigorous, voluntary, multi-step process. ASTRO accredits only those facilities that meet our high standards of quality care and treatment.
By selecting an APEx-accredited facility, you can be confident that your facility has successfully reviewed all aspects of its operation and met our quality standards. APEx includes a thorough assessment of the facility, equipment, care coordination, patient safety and treatment procedures. This process shows the facility team where they are excelling and where they can improve. Once the assessment is complete, the facility is reviewed by external radiation oncology professionals, who visit in-person to evaluate the facility and verify the standards are met. Only then is APEx accreditation awarded.
