PM Pediatric Care Establishes Patient Safety Organization

Lake Success, NY (July 25, 2023): Pediatric Healthcare Leader PM Pediatric Care is pleased to announce that they have established a Patient Safety Organization (PSO) called the PM Pediatric Patient Safety Alliance. The PM Pediatric Patient Safety Alliance was recently listed by the Department of Health and Human Services Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). Created to improve healthcare quality and patient safety, this PSO will work with clinical teams at member institutions to continue to establish and grow a culture of safety. By collecting and analyzing safety and quality information shared by healthcare team members who then receive feedback aimed at reducing risk, there is ongoing learning and improvement for participants.

“As one of the first PSOs established in the ambulatory pediatric setting, we are honored to spearhead this important work,” said Dr. Karin E. Sadow, Chief Medical Officer at PM Pediatric Care.

The PM Pediatric Patient Safety Alliance’s mission is to safeguard patients by facilitating a learning culture that fosters innovation and empowers healthcare professionals to deliver best-in-class, high-quality care. “Establishment of the PM Pediatric Patient Safety Alliance is a testament to our commitment to the continued delivery of safe, high-quality care for the patient population we serve. From data analysis to ongoing education and feedback, our PSO will raise the standard for patient safety and healthcare quality in member groups and practices,” shared Kristen Crandall, MSN, RN, Vice President of Quality and Safety at PM Pediatric Care.
