(PSES). The information provided in this webinar will
allow you to bring your quality programs to the next level by
fully implementing the three pathways under the Patient
Safety Act. Examples of activities or data types to be
Incident reports reported to CHPSO (reporting pathway)

The webinar will focus on innovative clinical activities that can
be accomplished under the PSQIA protections. The
presentation will provide examples and best practices of how to
use the CHPSO PSES templates. Specifically, you will learn:
How to determine which pathway to use to protect quality
improvement activities and data.
How to protect Ongoing Professional Practice Evaluation
(OPPE) and Focused Professional Practice Evaluation (FPPE) as
well as advanced analytics and systems processes.
How to design a effective PSES with the least amount of

Alliance for Quality Improvement and Patient Safety
Peggy Binzer serves as the Executive Director of the Alliance for
Quality Improvement and Patient Safety, the nation’s leading
professional association for PSOs and their healthcare provider
members. AQUIPS leads efforts to measurably improve patient
safety and the quality of patient care by fostering the ability
of providers to implement a culture of safety and high
reliability. Peggy spearheaded the crafting and passage of
the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA) while
serving as senior health counsel for the U.S. Senate Health,
Education, Labor and Pensions (HELP) Committee. As a partner
in several law firms, she has assisted hospitals and specialty
physician associations, health systems, and management
organizations in becoming patient safety organizations
(PSOs). In addition she has provided health systems,
pharmacy chains, and other providers with legal guidance to
improve the quality of patient care and implement the PSQIA’s
protections through the establishment and maintenance of a
Patient Safety Evaluation System (PSES).
Continuing Education Credit
One complimentary CE unit will be provided to dues-paying member
hospitals of the Hospital Quality Institute, CHPSO Patient Safety
Organization, the California Hospital Association or the regional
hospital associations in CA.
HQI is an approved continuing education (CE) provider by the
California Board of Registered Nursing and will provide CHPSO
members an opportunity to earn CEs. Provider Number CEP16793
for 1.0 contact hour.
HQI does not currently offer ACPE approved Pharmacy CE, but
the State of California will accept CE from courses which have
been approved for continuing education by the Medical Board of
California, the California Board of Podiatric Medicine, the
California Board of Registered Nursing or the Dental Board of
California towards their California continuing education
requirement (Section 1732.2(b) of the California Code of
Regulations). Pharmacists need to keep track of CE from these
sources on their own as they are not submitted to NAPB.
