The Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Final Rule (Patient Safety Rule) authorizes AHRQ, on behalf of the Secretary of HHS, to list as a patient safety organization (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 and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 (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. AHRQ accepted a notification of proposed voluntary relinquishment from Healthcare Quality Support, LLC (P0050); Premier Patient Safety Organization (P0054); QA STATS LLC (P0140); Securus Medica, LLC (P0053); Vascular Study Group Patient Safety Organization, LLC (P0080); and Washington State Patient Safety Organization PSO (P0060), of their PSO status and delisted the PSOs accordingly, but did not previously publish notices of their delisting in the Federal Register.
