Now Available: Health IT Patient Safety Supplemental Item Set

The AHRQ Health Information Technology (Health IT) Patient Safety Supplemental Item Set is now available.

The supplemental item set asks how Health IT affects patient safety culture, and assesses how an organization's patient safety culture is sensitive to Health IT. Hospitals can now administer the item set at the end of the AHRQ Surveys on Patient Safety Culture™ (SOPS™) Hospital Survey.

Also available is the Pilot Test Results Report, which describes the Health IT Patient Safety Supplemental Item Set scores from 44 participating hospitals.

For more information or questions, email SafetyCultureSurveys@westat.com or call 1-888-324-9749.
