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.
We’re excited to share updates on this important work to make care safer for all Americans, and look forward to your participation!
