Join the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), and the National Quality Forum (NQF),  December 12 and 13 to learn how patient safety organizations (PSOs) and the Common Formats for Event Reporting are working to improve patient safety across the nation.
Currently, there are more than 80 PSOs headquartered in nearly 30 states. Fulfilling the vision of the Patient Safety Act to create a national learning system, PSOs use AHRQ’s Common Formats to aggregate and analyze data on patient safety events from providers across the nation. At the federal level, these standardized data can provide important information on trends and areas for improvement. NQF works with AHRQ to collect public input on the Common Formats, which are currently available for acute-care hospitals, nursing homes, and retail pharmacies.
  • On 12, from 1:30 p.m.-4:00 p.m., learn from AHRQ how providers work with a PSO, and hear from a PSO, the Michigan Surgical Quality Collaborative PSO, about their experience partnering with healthcare organizations and the clinical impact of their work, and from CMS about the patient safety landscape including some important areas where PSOs and Common Formats are recognized. Register now!
  • On 13, from 12:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m., hear from AHRQ about how the Common Formats are evolving and provide feedback on improvements. NQF staff will also share updates on related patient safety projects. Register now!
Congress legislated the creation of PSOs in The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005, in response to the Institute of Medicine’s groundbreaking report, To Err is Human, which sparked national concern about avoidable medical errors. PSOs confer privilege and confidentiality protections on providers who work with them in an effort to promote shared learning from medical errors and improve patient safety and quality of care across the nation.
We’re excited to share updates on this important work to make care safer for all Americans, and look forward to your participation!
