True recognition is resting in the knowledge that good things are being done for cancer patients and their families and that quality, value and positive outcomes in cancer care are being preserved, promoted and rewarded. However, the intent of the OMH Steering and Implementation Committees is to partner with a certifying body that recognizes positive patient and family experiences, quality, value and positive outcomes.

This Recognition effort will also have a stepped approach for small to large cancer centers and will assist in identifying, encouraging and rewarding these high achievers in cancer care.
