Type: Notice

Agency: Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Department of Health and Human Services
The Patient Safety Rule 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, when a PSO chooses to voluntarily relinquish its status as a PSO for any reason, or when a PSO's listing expires. AHRQ has accepted a notification of voluntary relinquishment from Diagnostic Quality Assurance of its status as a PSO, and has delisted the PSO accordingly. Diagnostic Quality Assurance, PSO number P0170, submitted this request for voluntary relinquishment after receiving a Notice of Preliminary Finding of Deficiency.
