The Florida Patient Safety Corporation has established seven advisory committees, as required in its enabling legislation, to successfully carry out its powers and duties.

At a minimum, these committees will work together to:

  • Collect, analyze and evaluate safety data, quality and patient safety indicators, medical malpractice closed claims and adverse incidents reported to the Agency for Health Care Administration and Department of Health
  • Establish a “near-miss” patient safety reporting system
  • Collaborate with the appropriate state agencies in the development of electronic health records
  • Provide access to an active library of evidence-based medicine and patient safety practices
  • Develop and recommend core competencies in patient safety that can be incorporated in to the undergraduate and graduate curricula in schools of medicine, nursing and allied health in the state
  • Develop and recommend programs to educate the public about the role of health care consumers in promoting patient safety
