Many medical offices using the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Surveys on Patient Safety Culture™ (SOPS™) Medical Office Survey have expressed interest in comparing their results to other medical offices. In response, AHRQ has established the Medical Office Survey on Patient Safety Culture Database. This database is a central repository for survey data from medical offices that have administered the AHRQ patient safety culture survey instrument.
