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 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 website 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:
Vendors can perform various services on the PSOPPC website on behalf of their PSO clients. The vendor must complete the Vendor Registration Form via DocuSign. The PSO must have a valid Data Use Agreement (DUA) with the PSOPPC and will need to email the PSOPPC requesting the vendor be allowed to submit data on their behalf.
Please review Educational Brief Issue 30 which describes the complete process of how to successfully set up a vendor organization account with the PSOPPC.
