OnkoZert is an independent institute for quality assurance and data management in medicine. As the mandate holder of the German Cancer Society (DKG) we have been involved in certifying oncological care facilities for more than 10 years. Against this backdrop, we handle the certification process and the associated data management on the national and international level for more than 1,200 oncological care facilities. The focus is on improving the care of cancer patients. To this end, we promote interdisciplinary care structures and make process and outcome quality measurable.
Thanks to the certification system, the quality of both Organ Cancer Centres (Breast Cancer Centres, Colorectal Cancer Centres, etc.) and overarching care networks (Oncology Centres, Visceral Oncology Centres, etc.) can be documented externally. Certification is undertaken in line with the specific requirements of the German Cancer Society and several medical associations.
In 2017 the German Cancer Society launched programmes that permit international certification with due consideration of national factors. Currently, almost 100 oncological care facilities outside Germany are participating in the certification process.
More detailed information on the international certification system can be accessed on: www.ecc-cert.org. If you have plans for or a concrete interest in certification outside Germany, we kindly ask you to contact us directly by email or phone.
