Patient Safety & PSOs

Improving the quality of care is critical to the mission of improving our health care delivery system. Improving patient safety has also become an important business objective as financial success has become directly linked to quality and patient safety improvement. These efforts require focus on operational elements such as system design, data reporting, event analysis and collaborative learning. To maximize participation and buy-in to patient safety work, these efforts should be designed in a way that maximizes protection in the litigation and regulatory arenas.
