125 Confidentiality, Mortality Reviews, and the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act*

This presentation will discuss mortality reviews and the Patient Safety and Quality Improvement Act. Topics will include how your mortality reviews fall under the Act, what protections the Act provides you in subsequent litigation, what information is protected from disclosure in subsequent litigation by the Act, what information is not protected under the Act, and how providers can waive confidentiality.

Educational Objectives

  • Describe the confidentiality protections the Act provides for your mortality reviews according to the Act's language and case law
  • Analyze two case studies discussing what is and is not deemed confidential under the law
  • Examine three case studies of what constitutes waiver of confidentiality and the policies and procedures that can help you avoid waiver
