AHRQ Patient Safety Culture Survey

The Agency for Health Care Administration (AHCA) in Florida has established rule 59A-35.115 for Patient Safety Culture Surveys (PSCS), requiring all hospitals and ambulatory surgical centers to conduct PSCS and report to AHCA biennially. The initial reporting period will run from June 1st to August 31st, 2025. Florida is the first state making the PSCS mandatory. 

Facilities have the option to engage a vendor to collect, compile, and submit the survey data. Healthcare Management Americas (HMA) at Florida International University is an initiative focused on utilizing research and training to enhance patient safety practices. With over five years of experience implementing the PSCS globally, HMA is ideally positioned to serve as your primary vendor for executing the PSCS across all your facilities, ensuring efficient and timely reporting to AHCA.

Our comprehensive service extends beyond AHCA’s requirements. We provide valuable reports containing actionable items and key results tailored for two distinct audiences: leaders and staff. Additionally, we offer in-depth analysis based on the PSCS instrument and supplementary questions. Lastly, we deliver training sessions to all staff members on the principles of patient safety culture.
