Patient Safety Organization

The SR Patient Safety Organization (PSO) is the first radiology specific PSO in the country, designed to help clinicians, hospitals, and healthcare organizations improve patient care by advocating for quality and safety analyses. Through federal protections of legal privilege and confidentiality authorized by the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act of 2005, PSOs foster a culture of safety and create a secure environment where providers can collect and analyze data.

In light of heightened consumer awareness regarding healthcare safety, as well as increased interest in radiation dosage management, SR PSO activities will likely have broad implications for radiology providers across the country as they seek to improve quality.
