Each year, NCPS completes its Patient Safety Organization (PSO) Profile with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). AHRQ has begun collecting additional information from PSOs related to the characteristics of the healthcare organizations we serve. In order to accurately complete this additional information, we are asking the primary contact at each NCPS member organization to complete a short survey. NCPS will use the information from the survey to complete the AHRQ PSO Profile and to maintain a member profile for each organization member. In addition to the AHRQ required fields, we hope to update contact information, organization demographics and to learn more about the current patient safety needs of your organization. The surveys will be sent this week by email and we ask that it be completed by January 14th. Thank you for your help in keeping our records up to date and providing key information so that we can better serve you.
NCPS will be embarking on an electronic reporting system for organization members early in 2022. Using a phased implementation approach, NCPS will transition from using a fillable pdf form to a web-based reporting platform which member organizations may access to submit reports to NCPS and to view their own reported data. Look for virtual informational meetings to be scheduled soon. Funding from the Patient Safety Cash Fund will be used to support this project.
Organization member fees will increase by approximately 3% in 2022, to help NCPS keep pace with the cost of doing business. Membership invoices will be sent to designated organization contacts beginning in January.
