ECRI Institute Patient Safety Organization (PSO) has been selected to provide patient safety collection, analysis, and reporting services to MCIC Vermont PSO. ECRI Institute PSO will collect and analyze adverse events and other safety data submitted by participating academic medical centers, hospitals, health systems, and physician groups.
Through this effort, MCIC VT PSO aims to reduce the risk of adverse events, unintended outcomes, and malpractice claims while helping to increase safety at its insured institutions. “MCIC views this partnership as a great opportunity for shared learning to improve patient safety for our subscribers under the protective umbrella of the PSO,” said Christine McMullan, vice president for loss prevention and patient safety at MCIC Vermont PSO.
