SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    The Patient Safety Act, Public Law 109-41, 42 U.S.C. 299b-21--b-26, 
provides for the formation of PSOs, which collect, aggregate, and 
analyze confidential information regarding the quality and safety of 
health care delivery. The 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. Section 3.108(d) of the Patient Safety 
Rule requires AHRQ to provide public notice when it removes an 
organization from the list of federally approved PSOs, including when a 
PSO chooses to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO for any 
reason. Accordingly, CareRise LLC, PSO number P0058, was delisted 
effective at 12:00 Midnight ET (2400) on March 30, 2012.
