FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ellen Crown, Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, 301–427–1258 or ellen.crown@ahrq.hhs.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 (Patient Safety Act), the Secretary is authorized to list Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs), organizations that will work with providers to collect and analyze patient safety related data. The Statute sets forth and the recently published proposed regulation explains certifications that must be submitted by entities in order to be listed as PSOs. PSOs will provide analysis of data and feedback to providers to assist them in improving patient safety. The Patient Safety Act protects the confidentiality of data shared by providers prepared by the PSO as well as other related materials, defined in the statute and proposed regulations. This legal protection of information addresses significant barriers that currently exists—the fear of legal liability or sanctions that can result from reporting a patient safety event. Strong confidentiality provisions are key to encouraging voluntary reporting, and facilitating the aggregation of large volumes of data which in turn aids in identifying patterns of patient safety events. Under the Patient Safety Act, the imposition of civil monetary penalties is authorized for breaches of its confidentiality provisions. The confidentiality protections of patient safety information are to be implemented in a way that does not interfere with other health care reporting obligations of providers, e.g., under State or local laws.
