SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Project Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture Comparative Database Background on the Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture (Medical Office SOPS). In 1999, the Institute of Medicine called for health care organizations to develop a ‘‘culture of safety’’ such that their workforce and processes focus on improving the reliability and safety of care for patients (IOM, 1999; To Err is Human: Building a Safer Health System). To respond to the need for tools to assess patient safety culture in health care, AHRQ developed and pilot tested the Medical Office SOPS with OMB approval (OMB NO.0935–0131; Approved July 5, 2007). The survey is designed to enable medical offices to assess provider and staff opinions about patient safety issues, medical error, and error reporting. The survey includes 38 items that measure 10 composites of patient safety culture. In addition to the composite items, 14 items measure how often medical offices have problems exchanging information with other settings and other patient safety and quality issues. AHRQ made the survey publicly available along with a Survey User’s Guide and other toolkit materials in December 2008 on the AHRQ Web site (located at http://www.ahrq.gov/ professionals/quality-patient-safety/ patientsafetyculture/medical-office/ index.html). Since its release, the survey has been voluntarily used by hundreds of medical offices in the U.S. The Medical Office SOPS Comparative Database consists of data from the AHRQ Medical Office SOPS.
