The NYSDOH’s Office of Quality and Patient Safety has developed a new electronic adverse event reporting (AER) tool that will be easily accessible and assist OBS practices in reporting adverse events as required by Public Health Law § 230-d.
The new electronic AER is designed to assist OBS practices in reporting adverse events and submitting medical records more efficiently. It will also allow the OBS program to identify trends in adverse events and opportunities for quality improvement in OBS practices.
The OBS program anticipates launching the electronic AER tool February 3, 2020. Additional information will be provided to the practices as we move closer to the launch date of the electronic AER tool including written & video instructions for using the tool.
Should you have any questions, please contact the Office of Quality & Patient Safety, OBS Program at (518) 408-1219 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
