PSO Profile Data Submission

The PSO Profile form provides information to AHRQ and HHS on the types of healthcare providers, settings, and reports for which PSOs conduct patient safety activities. This form is designed to collect data that will be used to generate aggregate statistics necessary to administer the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005, as well as report on the Act's impact.

The PSOPPC provides guidance on how to update PSO Profile information every year. For questions related to the PSO Profile form, please submit a request on the Contact Us page or email the PSOPPC Help Desk at support@psoppc.org.

PSO Profile Form

The PSO Profile form includes two sections: PSO Profile and Provider Profile. The PSO Profile collects the PSO's administrative information, including the number of providers, type of entity, type of patient safety concerns collected, and specialty focus. The Provider Profile collects information on the providers with which the PSO has a contract pursuant to the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act. Information should be collected for all providers that currently submit, or intend to submit patient safety concerns to the PSO.
