At Oklahoma Cancer Specialists and Research Institute, we are proud to be a leader in cancer treatment, research and patient care. Our practice has been recognized by some of the leading U.S. cancer research, technology and standards groups.
Oklahoma Cancer Specialists and Research Institute is a certified cancer center by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI), an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). QOPI certification is given to outpatient hematology-oncology practices that meet the highest standards for quality. OCSRI is only the second cancer center in Oklahoma to achieve this recognition.
The QOPI® Certification Program (QCPTM) was launched in January 2010, with more than 200 practices already certified. This certification for outpatient oncology practices is the first program of its kind for oncology in the United States. Oncologists can achieve certification by meeting the highest standards of care. The QCP seal designates those practices that not only scored high on the key QOPI quality measures, but meet rigorous chemotherapy safety standards established by ASCO and the Oncology Nursing Society (ONS).

Elekta & C-RAD
Oklahoma Cancer Specialists and Research Institute is proud to be a designated reference site for Elekta, offering a broad range of state-of-the-art hardware and software products to expand radiation therapy options for more patients.
C-RAD technology offers non-invasive tracking mechanisms to monitor a patient’s movements and breathing during treatment.
The C-RAD and Elekta technology combined, includes surface positioning and intrafraction motion management, which ensures the patient gets the most accurate treatment possible and is perfectly positioned throughout treatment delivery. If, at any point throughout treatment, any patient movement over a pre-set threshold is detected, it automatically pauses the treatment. When the patient is back in the correct position, treatment continues. Together, these technologies support OCSRI’s focus on precision, safety, and efficiency, providing up-to-date solutions to curing more patients and improving quality of life.
American College of Radiology
The American College of Radiology (ACR), founded in 1923, is a professional medical society representing more than 38,000 diagnostic radiologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, nuclear medicine physicians and medical physicists. ACR’s core purpose is to serve patients and society by empowering members to advance the practice, science and professions of radiological care.
Accreditation is a process of review that allows healthcare organizations to demonstrate their ability to meet regulatory requirements and standards established by a recognized accreditation organization such as ACHC. Accreditation reflects an agency’s dedication and commitment to meeting standards that demonstrate a higher level of performance and patient care. ACHC Accreditation Standards were created by industry experts with providers’ needs in mind.
On-site accreditation surveys are conducted every three years by ACHC Surveyors who possess industry-specific experience. They follow a comprehensive review process that looks at organizational structure, policies and procedures, and compliance with state and federal laws.
