Envision’s Patient Safety Organization (PSO) earned accreditation in 2017 and is in the final stages of building a Patient Safety Evaluation System (PSES), a reporting tool designed to collect data across specialties. The PSES is slated for launch in 2020.
Joshua Bloomstone, MD, M.Sc., FASA, Associate Medical Director, Patient Safety Organization, has been instrumental in the creation of the PSES. Over the past few years, Dr. Bloomstone has leveraged PSO data to produce a variety of multidisciplinary white papers.
Fostering the strong and engaged community of Envision providers who collaborate across service lines, the PSO’s clinical discussions boards host over 10,000 conversations each month.
