North Carolina Healthcare Association Patient Safety Organization

The Quality Center Patient Safety Organization has a new name: the North Carolina Healthcare Association Patient Safety Organization (NCHA PSO). The mission of the NCHA PSO is to conduct activities that minimize harm to patients by fostering a culture of quality and safety through learning and sharing among healthcare organizations. Our PSO

  • Was the first federally-designated PSO in North Carolina and the 25th in the nation (2008);
  • Provides a secure environment for healthcare providers in NC and other states to voluntarily report, discuss and learn from patient safety events and near misses, regardless of care setting;
  • Is dedicated to helping members improve patient care practices and culture across diverse healthcare settings.

What is a PSO?
The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 (Patient Safety Act) authorized the creation of a nationwide network of PSOs. 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 healthcare improvements.
