CHPSO Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary

CHPSO — formerly known as the California Hospital Patient Safety Organization — last month celebrated 10 years of facilitating patient safety improvement in hospitals across the nation.

Founded in November 2008 by CHA and the Regional Associations, CHPSO has grown to serve more than 400 health care organizations across 10 states. Members share safety events with CHPSO and, in return, receive specific analyses and evaluations of the event. CHPSO’s database now includes more than 1.9 million safety events, a broad scope from which best practices and lessons learned can be identified and information that is vital to member hospitals’ continued improvement.

CHA and the Regional Associations thank members for their dedication to providing high-quality care to patients across the state.
