Coalition For Quality & Patient Safety Of Chicagoland PSO Taps ECRI Institute PSO For Support

ECRI Institute Patient Safety Organization (PSO) is pleased to announce an agreement with the Coalition for Quality & Patient Safety (CQPS) of Chicagoland PSO to provide patient safety data collection, reporting, and analysis. The Chicagoland PSO focuses on local experience, patterns, trends, and patient safety initiatives specific to Chicago and the surrounding counties. CQPS will coordinate its PSO and other patient safety efforts with other Illinois-based hospital and primary care associations, the Illinois Department of Public Health, consumers and consumer advocates, other patient safety and quality improvement stakeholders, and existing patient safety collaboratives across the state.

“Our goal is to engage all stakeholders in Chicagoland in practical efforts to prevent harm where we can and to learn from error when it occurs. The CQPS PSO is an exciting new tool that will advance our members’ safety and quality improvement work through collaborative sharing in a legally protected and confidential manner,” says new CQPS Chief Executive Officer Martin J. Hatlie, J.D. “Hospitals, medical groups, and long-term care and other providers will soon be able to learn, not only from their own events, but from those pooled throughout Chicagoland,” adds Hatlie. “That’s the beauty of the program.”
