Patient Safety Organization (PSO)

A PSO collects, aggregates and analyzes patient safety events that are confidentially reported by hospitals and other healthcare providers. By encouraging voluntary and confidential reporting of serious adverse events a PSO can facilitate a shared-learning approach that supports effective improvements to reduce risk and harm in the delivery of health care. In 2008, the NC Center for Hospital Quality & Patient Safety became North Carolina’s first federal PSO as certified by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). In 2022, the PSO changed its name to the NCHA PSO.
