"Working with a PSO: One Approach,” was developed in response to numerous inquiries from PSOs and providers alike on how a provider should set up a Patient Safety Evaluation System or PSES when working with a PSO. The concept of a PSES is flexible and not directive. A PSES for a solo practitioner is likely to be less complex than one set up for a large academic medical center. Complexity of the PSES may increase as more providers are served and the volume of information being evaluated grows. The model this video reviews is intended to raise many - but certainly not all - of the issues that a provider should consider.
"Benefits of AHRQ Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs): Success Stories from Hospital PSO Members." The June 10th Webinar highlights the AHRQ PSO program and presents success stories from hospitals that are members of one or more PSOs. Hospitals shared how their organizations worked with their PSO for meaningful improvements in patient safety and quality.
