ACTION: Notice of availability—revised and enhanced event-specific common format. emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005, 42 U.S.C. 299b–21 to b–26, (Patient Safety Act) provides for the formation of Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs), which collect, aggregate, and analyze confidential information regarding the SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:43 Oct 21, 2010 Jkt 223001 Number of responses per respondent Number of respondents Instrument 35,286 quality and safety of healthcare delivery. The Patient Safety Act (at 42 U.S.C. 299b–23) authorizes the collection of this information in a standardized manner, as explained in the related Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Final Rule, 42 CFR part 3 (Patient Safety Rule), published in the Federal Register on November 21, 2008: 73 FR 70731–70814. As authorized by the Secretary of HHS, AHRQ coordinates the development of a set of common definitions and reporting formats (Common Formats) that allow healthcare providers to voluntarily collect and submit standardized information regarding patient safety events. The purpose of this notice is to announce the availability of a significant revision of a previously released Common Format for public review and comment. DATES: Ongoing public input. ADDRESSES: The revised Device or Medical/Surgical Supply including Health Information Technology (HIT) Device format and the remaining Common Formats Version 1.1 can be accessed electronically at the following HHS Web site: http:// www.PSO.AHRQ.gov/index.html.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background The Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule establish a framework by which doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers may voluntarily report information regarding patient safety events and quality of care. Information that is assembled and developed by providers for reporting to PSOs and the information received and analyzed by PSOs—called ‘‘patient safety work product’’—is privileged and confidential. Patient safety work product is used to identify events, patterns of care, and unsafe conditions that increase risks and hazards to patients. Definitions and other details PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Average burden hours per response 1 0.50 Total burden hours 17,643 about PSOs and patient safety work product are included in the Patient Safety Rule. The Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule require PSOs, to the extent practical and appropriate, to collect patient safety work product from providers in a standardized manner in order to permit valid comparisons of similar cases among similar providers. The collection of patient safety work product allows the aggregation of sufficient data to identify and address underlying causal factors of patient safety problems. Both the Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule can be accessed electronically at: http:// www.PSO.AHRQ.gov/requlations/ regulations.htm. In order to facilitate standardized data collection, the Secretary of HHS authorized AHRQ to develop and maintain the Common Formats to improve the safety and quality of healthcare delivery. In August 2008, AHRQ issued the initial release of the formats, Version 0.1 Beta. The second release of the Common Formats, Version 1.0, was announced in the Federal Register on September 2, 2009: 74 FR 45457–45458. This release was later replaced by Version 1.1, as announced in the Federal Register on March 31, 2010: 75 FR 16140–16142. Version 1.1 includes updated event descriptions, forms, and technical specifications for software developers. Definition of Common Formats The term ‘‘Common Formats’’ is used to describe clinical definitions and technical requirements developed for the uniform collection and reporting of patient safety data, including all supporting material. The Common Formats are not intended to replace any current mandatory reporting system, collaborative/voluntary reporting system, research-related reporting system, or other reporting/recording system. The scope of Common Formats applies to all patient safety concerns including: Æ Incidents—patient safety events that reached the patient, whether or not there was harm, Æ Near misses or close calls—patient safety events that did not reach the patient, and E:\FR\FM\22OCN1.SGM 22OCN1
