Hospitals to Receive Snapshot Reports from CHPSO this Month

Each year, CHPSO mails member hospitals a snapshot of their activity with the patient safety organization for the year. Later this month, hospital CEOs and CHPSO contacts will receive feedback — addressing tone, thoroughness, trends and recommendations — on their submitted events along with a dashboard including hospital-specific information on events submitted in 2016, harm scores, top drug classes mentioned in submitted events, participation at safe tables, and the number of newsletter subscribers. CHPSO’s 2016 Annual Report which covers Jan. 1-Dec. 31, 2016, and focuses on CHPSO’s year in review as well as upcoming opportunities for 2017 — will also be included with this mailing.

CHPSO’s objectives are to eliminate preventable harm by sharing de-identified events to the health care community in lessons learned and newsletter articles; collaborating with providers to further understand why errors occur by separating individuals from the process; and developing a culture of safety.

A members-only webinar discussing the overall trends for 2016 will take place on May 26 at 11 am. To register, click here.
