Reminder: Data Submission Open for AHRQ Community Pharmacy Survey

Data submission is now open for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) Community Pharmacy Survey on Patient Safety Culture Comparative Database. Community pharmacies that have administered the AHRQ community pharmacy safety culture survey can now voluntarily submit their data.

To submit data, please go to https://www.sopsdatabase.ahrq.gov.

  • Data submission is open from September 15 – November 1;
  • Community pharmacies must be in the U.S. or U.S. territories;
  • Each pharmacy location, including those part of a pharmacy chain or health care system, is considered a separate pharmacy for submission purposes; and
  • Participating pharmacies will receive individual pharmacy and system feedback reports comparing their results to the overall comparative results.

This database is a central repository for survey data from community pharmacies, or survey vendors, that have administered the AHRQ community pharmacy survey instrument. One of the purposes of the database is to produce comparative results to help community pharmacies identify strengths and opportunities for improvement in their patient safety culture. Comparative results are reported in the aggregate and do not include any information identifying participating community pharmacies.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns at DatabasesOnSafetyCulture@westat.com.

Thank you,

The Community Pharmacy Survey Database Submission Team
