Industry Spotlight: PSO? PSES? PSWP?

Join us for our upcoming Industry Spotlight: PSO? PSES? PSWP? You have questions, we have answers on Thursday,  Sept. 12 at 12:00 PM (EST).

The Center for Patient Safety will be presenting this topic with its partner Verge Solutions.

We know hospitals are asking how to establish a Patient Safety Evaluation System (PSES) and define Patient Safety Work Product (PSWP) to gain the most from the federal protections and improvement opportunities available by working with a Patient Safety Organization (PSO), particularly in light of the pending January 2015 ACA requirement for larger hospitals to establish a PSES. During this Webinar the Center for Patient Safety will answer your questions based upon  its extensive experience in working one-on-one with more than 200 healthcare providers (hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers and ambulance services) in establishing a PSES and reporting PSWP to their PSO.

Click here to register. Please feel free to  invite anyone in your organization who may also be interested.
