CHPSO has a new agreement with The American Medical Foundation
Patient Safety Organization (AMFPSO) that allows CHPSO members

agreement, without the need for an additional hospital-AMFPSO
AMFPSO is a component of the American Medical Foundation
for Peer Review and Education (AMF). AMF is a non-profit 501(c)3
organization that was founded in 1987 by the leaders of national
medical specialty societies and health care organizations in
response to the Healthcare Quality Improvement Act. AMFPSO now
provides good-faith independent peer review and assessment of the
quality of medical care for CHPSO member hospitals.
It is the leading consulting agency in the United States for
independent hospital and medical staff peer review. The faculty
consists of the foremost medical educators and practitioners who
have evaluated and educated individual physicians, specialty
groups and reorganized service lines for thousands of hospitals
in all fifty states. AMF also provides on-site physician
continuing education and telementoring.
As a PSO, AMF understands how Patient Safety Evaluation Systems
are established and how their reports become part of the
protected Patient Safety Work Product.
