Data Reporting Tools
The Network of Patient Safety Databases (NPSD) uses non-identifiable data received through the Patient Safety Organization Privacy Protection Center (PSOPPC) from PSOs and, eventually, other data sources to develop various informational products for the public, such as the NPSD Dashboards and the NPSD Chartbook. Information resulting from analyses of data in the NPSD will also be included in the National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report. A sufficient volume of data to maintain confidentiality and reliability is required for data elements to be published.
|The NPSD Dashboards enable users to explore and visualize data elements collected through the Common Formats and examine associations between different elements over time.|
|The NPSD Chartbook provides an overview of the patient safety data captured in the NPSD dashboards and highlights patterns and trends in the data.|
|AHRQ’s National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report includes NPSD data on national changes in trends and patterns of healthcare errors, patient safety, quality, and disparities of care each year by condition, population groups, and by State through its State Snapshots.|
