EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, PENNSYLVANIA PATIENT SAFETY AUTHORITY

The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Patient Safety Authority is proud to be an equal opportunity employer supporting workplace diversity.

The Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority (“Authority”) is seeking an experienced Patient Safety Professional to fulfill the role of Executive Director. The Medical Care Availability and Reduction of Error Act, Act No. 13 of 2002 (“MCARE Act”), created the Authority as a “body corporate and politic” and an independent agency. The powers and duties of the Authority are vested in and exercised by a Board of Directors (Board), chaired by the Physician General. The Authority’s budget currently exceeds $8mm.

The PA Patient Safety Authority is a recognized national and international leader in patient safety. It was named a recipient of the 2006 John M. Eisenberg Award for advancing patient safety and quality. Presented jointly by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations and the National Quality Forum (NQF), the award acknowledged the Authority’s impact on patient safety on a regional level for its efforts in making the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Reporting System (PAPSRS) a nationally recognized resource for education and learning about patient safety.

The PA Patient Safety Authority manages extensive databases that collect patient safety data from hospitals, nursing homes and other facilities.  Through dedicated liaisons, the Authority provides constructive feedback to facilities on at risk areas and best practices for patient safety improvement.  The Authority publishes quarterly a nationally recognized peer reviewed journal (The Pennsylvania Patient Safety Advisory) and is one of the largest education resources for patients, providers and administrators in the Commonwealth, nationally and internationally.
