 Join or Establish a PSO

  • Benefits of joining a PSO include using the privilege and confidentiality protections of the PSQIA to facilitate building a culture of safety and high reliability in which all licensed health care providers are able to discuss errors openly and learn from them.

  • Most state peer review statutes did not contemplate new health care models, such as clinically integrated networks, that evaluate a physician’s performance using dashboards, scorecards, benchmarking and other statistical analysis to drive performance improvement and sharing that information outside of a hospital or physician practice. 
  • The PSQIA is flexible “to accelerate the development of new, voluntary provider-driven opportunities for improvement” and to “set the stage for breakthroughs in our understanding of how best to improve patient safety.”
