What is a PSO?

PSO stands for Patient Safety Organization, and stems from the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005. This Act called for the creation of PSOs as a means of assessing and improving patient safety outcomes in US health care delivery. Through the law, all licensed providers are encouraged to collect and report patient safety and quality information to an accredited PSO. In return, all data reported to the PSO are held confidential and legally protected from discovery.
