collect, aggregate, and analyze confidential information regarding the 
quality and safety of health care delivery. The Patient Safety and 
Quality Improvement Final Rule (Patient Safety Rule), 42 CFR part 3, 
authorizes AHRQ, on behalf of the Secretary of HHS, to list as a PSO an 
entity that attests that it meets the statutory and regulatory 
requirements for listing. A PSO can be ``delisted'' by the Secretary if 
it is found to no longer meet the requirements of the Patient Safety 
Act and Patient Safety Rule, including when a PSO chooses to 
voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO for any reason.

DATES: The directories for both listed and delisted PSOs are ongoing 
and reviewed weekly by AHRQ. The delisting was effective at 12 Midnight

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    The Patient Safety Act authorizes the listing of PSOs, which are 
entities or component organizations whose mission and primary activity 
is to conduct activities to improve patient safety and the quality of 
health care delivery.
    HHS issued the Patient Safety Rule to implement the Patient Safety 
Act. AHRQ administers the provisions of the Patient Safety Act and 
Patient Safety Rule (PDF file, 450 KB. PDF Help) relating to the 
listing and operation of PSOs. Section 3.108(d) of the Patient Safety 
Rule requires AHRQ to provide public notice when it removes a PSO from 
listing. AHRQ has accepted a notification from the Creighton Center for 
Health Services Research and Patient Safety (CHRP) Patient Safety 
Organization (PSO), PSO number P0049, to voluntarily relinquish its 
status as a PSO. Accordingly, the Creighton Center for Health Services 
Research PSO was delisted effective at 12 Midnight ET (2400) on July 6, 
2010.
    More information on PSOs can be obtained through AHRQ's PSO Web 
site at http:/www.pso.AHRQ.qov/index.html.
