California Hospital Patient Safety Organization (CHPSO) partners with The American Medical Foundation Patient Safety Organization (AMFPSO)

CHPSO has a new agreement with The American Medical Foundation Patient Safety Organization (AMFPSO) that allows CHPSO members easy access to AMFPSO member services through their CHIPSO PSO agreement, without the need for an additional hospital – AMFPSO agreement. CHIPSO is a division of the Hospital Quality Institute. 

As a PSO, AMF understands how Patient Safety Evaluation Systems are established and how their reports become part of the protected Patient Safety Work Product. 

AMFPSO is a component of the American Medical Foundation for Peer Review and Education (AMF).  AMF is a non-profit 501(C)3 organization that was founded in 1987 by the leaders of national medical specialty societies and health care organizations in response to the Healthcare Quality Improvement Act to provide independent peer review and assessment of the quality of medical care for CHIPSO member hospitals.

It is the leading consulting agency in the United States for independent hospital and medical staff peer review.   This faculty consists of the foremost medical educators and practitioners who have evaluated and educated individual physicians, specialty groups and recognized service lines for thousands of hospitals in all fifty states.   AMF also provides on-site physician continuing education and telementoring. 

For further information and assistance, please contact AMFPSO AT 215-545-6363.
