For PSOs

The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (Patient Safety Act) was enacted in July 2005, and the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement final rule (Patient Safety Rule) was issued in November 2008. The goal of the Patient Safety Act is to improve patient safety by encouraging voluntary and confidential reporting of healthcare events that adversely affect patients. The Patient Safety Act authorizes the creation of Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs) to administer the patient safety related activities stated in the law. The Patient Safety Rule established a process for designating and creating patient safety work product (PSWP) and for confidentially reporting such information to PSOs.
