Patient Safety News Changing to Bi-Monthly Schedule for More In-Depth Reporting

We are pleased to announce that we have received nearly 150,000 event reports to date, and the number of hospitals submitting events is increasing. Proper analysis of selected events requires reading the textual narrative involved, which is time-intensive.

Consequently, CHPSO Patient Safety News, formerly issued monthly, will now be issued every other month. This change is intended to allow us to provide articles based upon deeper analysis of the events we are receiving.

Please keep those reports coming in. If you have any questions about your organization’s readiness to report to a PSO and comply with the Affordable Care Act mandate, please contact Rory Jaffe.
