Summary of PSO court decisions and lessons learned
Slides and audio recording

Michael Callahan spoke to the CHPSO legal counsel group November 6, 2013. He manages the American Health Lawyers Association (AHLA) PSO workgroup, which is part of AHLA’s Medical Staff, Credentialing, and Peer Review Practice Group (MSCPR), and is a national expert on the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA). The interactive session covered relevant court decisions and lessons learned.

This call was the second in a series addressing the legal privileges and challenges of the PSQIA, the PSO rule, the Affordable Care Act patient safety evaluation system requirement, and recent legal developments. The slides and an audio recording of the presentation are now available here.

The CHPSO legal counsel group is open to all lawyers serving CHPSO members or California hospitals. Join the group at
