    The Patient Safety Act authorizes the listing of PSOs, which are 
entities or component organizations whose

mission and primary activity are 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 relating to the listing and operation of PSOs. The 
Patient Safety Rule authorizes AHRQ to list as a PSO an entity that 
attests that it meets the statutory and regulatory requirements for 
listing. A PSO can be ``delisted'' if it is found to no longer meet the 
requirements of the Patient Safety Act and Patient Safety Rule, when a 
PSO chooses to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO for any 
reason, or when the PSO's listing expires. 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.
    AHRQ has accepted a notification from Verge Patient Safety 
Organization, a component entity of Verge Solutions, LLC, PSO number 
P0118, to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO. Accordingly, 
Verge Patient Safety Organization was delisted effective at 12:00 
Midnight ET (2400) on February 2, 2016.
    Verge Patient Safety Organization has patient safety work product 
(PSWP) in its possession. The PSO will meet the requirements of section 
3.108(c)(2)(i) of the Patient Safety Rule regarding notification to 
providers that have reported to the PSO. In addition, according to 
sections 3.108(c)(2)(ii) and 3.108(b)(3) of the Patient Safety Rule 
regarding disposition of PSWP, the PSO has 90 days from the effective 
date of delisting and revocation to complete the disposition of PSWP 
that is currently in the PSO's possession.
