AHRQ Wins Award for Excellence From Medical Liability Association

AHRQ has received the 2016 Award of Excellence in Health Research from the Physician Insurers Association of America (PIAA), an association that represents medical professional liability insurers. In a letter to AHRQ Director Richard Kronick, Ph.D, PIAA President and CEO Brian K. Atchinson and Board of Directors Chair Gloria H. Everett commended AHRQ’s dedication to develop evidence to maximize the quality, accessibility, and affordability of health care, and to work with HHS and other stakeholders to ensure that AHRQ findings are understood and used. In particular, PIAA recognized AHRQ’s Center for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety for its focus on improving health care-associated infections, patient safety, and patient communication. PIAA represents medical professional liability companies, hospital and health system captives, risk-retention groups and other organizations that insure more than two-thirds of America's private practicing physicians, nurses and other healthcare professionals, and more than 2,000 hospitals and 8,000 medical facilities. The award will be officially presented to AHRQ on May 12 at PIAA’s 2016 Medical Liability Conference in Washington, D.C.
