Cancer Centers of Excellence Re-Designation
The designation for Florida-based Cancer Centers of Excellence is awarded for three years. Based on 381.925, Florida Statute, Cancer Centers of Excellence re-designation is necessary every three years. The intent of the re-designation process is to verify the same level of exemplary performance since the original designation. The process is an audit comparing the original application and an evaluation of practice at the time of the reapplication.
At this site, you will find the online application found at: Re-Designation for Cancer Centers of Excellence. The Department of Health will conduct one re-designation application for 2017. The application will be open from June 12 through August 18, 2017. The application will close at 5:00 PM, Eastern Time. Re-designation announcements will occur on or about November 30. 2017.
After, the application information will be evaluated through a peer review desk audit. The process of evaluating performance involves review of written materials. Peer reviewers will assess practice to verify performance measures are met. For more information and to submit questions, go to: Research@flhealth.gov. Questions will be compiled and posted at http://www.floridahealth.gov/provider-and-partner-resources/research/cancer-center-of-excellence-award.html
