For Software Developers/Vendors

The Patient Safety Privacy Protection Center (PSOPPC) enables software developers and vendors that are contracted with an AHRQ-listed Patient Safety Organization (PSO) to create user accounts to validate and submit patient safety event data, and access various technical resources. Software developers and vendor organizations that directly serve healthcare providers have the ability to utilize all public resources from the PSOPPC Web site such as the AHRQ Common Formats and data submission materials for validation purposes.

To find out further information on AHRQ Common Formats, such as settings of care available, the type of information collected and reported, and what versions of Common Formats are active for reporting, select the link below:

To better understand data submission prerequisites, and prepare for data submission to the PSOPPC, developers and vendors are encouraged to select the link below:

Data Submission

The PSOPPC can authorize vendors to perform various services on the PSOPPC Web site on behalf of their PSO clients. A PSO must have a valid Data Use Agreement (DUA) with the PSOPPC before a vendor can submit data on behalf of that PSO. The vendor will need to complete, notarize, and submit the forms listed below to the PSOPPC, and the PSO will need to authorize the vendor to submit data. Please review Educational Brief Issue 30 which describes the complete process of how to successfully set up a vendor organization account with the PSOPPC.
