What We Do

Clarity PSO offers healthcare providers the opportunity to participate in patient safety and quality improvement efforts without the risk of losing the protection of data confidentiality or fearing discovery in the case of potential litigation. Hospitals, long term care, home care, medical groups and others can gain this protection by following certain conditions set forth in the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005 (PSQIA).

By working with Clarity PSO, you gain access to risk-quality-safety management services, benchmarking opportunities, detailed event review, education, and resources for evidence-based best practices. We work with a highly qualified Healthcare Advisory Council to provide service excellence built on our more than 40 years of experience modifying systems to enhance healthcare quality. The process really is quite simple, and we encourage you to reach out to us to learn more.
