Abstract

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) developed patient safety indicators (PSIs) to help hospitals identify potentially preventable complications after surgeries and procedures.(1) Despite their use by federal programs to assess quality of care, there is no consensus on their accuracy as a marker of quality.(2) This article examines how a midsize community hospital used PSI-90 scores to develop targeted interventions that resulted in improved patient safety and quality ratings.

For over 45 years.

The American Association for Physician Leadership has helped physicians develop their leadership skills through education, career development, thought leadership and community building.

The American Association for Physician Leadership (AAPL) changed its name from the American College of Physician Executives (ACPE) in 2014. We may have changed our name, but we are the same organization that has been serving physician leaders since 1975.
