The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has published a notice inviting comments on Common Formats–Hospital Version 1.2, which is used for reporting patient safety events to Patient Safety Organizations (PS0s). Separately, the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, has launched the “Reporting Patient Safety Events Challenge,” which invites multi-disciplinary teams to develop an application that facilitates the reporting and tracking of patient safety events, whether implemented in hospital or ambulatory settings. The Challenge submission period ends July 23, 2012.
