Q: What is the CRICO AMC PSO?


AMC PSO stands for Academic Medical Center Patient Safety Organization.

The AMC PSO is a national convener of clinicians and health care organizations striving to promote patient safety by focusing on specific quality and safety initiatives, including:

  • Root Cause Analysis (RCA) Information
  • Convening Sessions
  • Adverse Event and Near-Miss Reporting

This began in 2009 when the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act (PSQIA) was enacted to create a culture of safety by providing federal privilege and confidentiality protections for information that is assembled and reported to a PSO, or developed by a PSO, for the conduct of patient safety activities.

Q: How can I join your PSO?


For information on joining the AMC PSO, please email Carol Ann Garcia, Program Administrator.

Q: What are the benefits of being part of the AMC PSO?


CRICO's AMC PSO offers the following benefits to members:

  • Access to the AMC PSO Secure Portal to share files and collaborate safely.
  • Ability to access and use the Root Cause Analysis Information Exchange tool.
  • Chance to be part of the closed secure in-person patient safety discussions and to influence the solutions.

Q: What can I learn about this work as a non-member?


AMC PSO makes patient safety learnings available to the public as part of CRICO’s ongoing commitment towards improving patient safety across the continuum of care.
