SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    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 a 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 the UM-JMH Center for Patient 
Safety PSO, a component entity of the University of Miami, PSO number 
P0096, to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO. Accordingly, the 
UM-JMH Center for Patient Safety PSO was delisted effective at 12:00 
Midnight ET (2400) on June 12, 2016.
    The UM-JMH Center for Patient Safety PSO 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.
    More information on PSOs can be obtained through AHRQ's PSO Web 
site at http://www.pso.AHRQ.gov.
