AHRQ Releases Patient Safety Organization Tools

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) launched a resource program for Patient Safety Organizations (PSOs) that wish to assist hospitals in reducing unnecessary readmissions. This program is in response to the Affordable Care Act (ACA), which designates PSOs as an entity that can help hospitals with high readmission rates improve their performance, and calls for the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support PSOs in this work.

To obtain additional information about this program, including the provisions in the ACA legislation and available readmissions resources, please go to:
