CPS Faculty for National Webinar Series: PSO? PSES? PSWP? You have questions we have answers!

August 26, 2013    |   By: Calevir


The Center for Patient Safety staff has learned a lot about providers’ needs in working with a Patient Safety Organization (PSO) and setting up processes to gain the most out of PSO participation and related federal confidentiality and security provisions. We are now sharing this expertise nationally through a FREE Webinar Series, PSO? PSES? PSWP? You have questions, we have answers beginning Thursday, September 12 at 11:00 AM CST, in partnership with Verge Solutions!

The September 12 Webinar focuses on establishing a Patient Safety Evaluation System (PSES) and introducing Patient Safety Work Product (PSWP) to help providers better understand how to set up a PSES to best meet their needs, particularly in light of the pending January 2015 ACA requirement for larger hospitals to establish a PSES. If you want to learn more about PSOs, PSES and PSWP, please join us September 12th.

Registration is available here.
