Rural Health

The State Office of Rural Health and Primary Care works with and supports small rural hospitals, clinics and health care providers to improve access to health care for all Vermonters.

Patient Safety

The Patient Safety Surveillance and Improvement System (PSSIS) was created for the purpose of improving patient safety, eliminating adverse events in Vermont hospitals, and supporting and facilitating quality improvement efforts by hospitals. The Vermont Department of Health is charged by statute to operate the PSSIS, and contracts with the Vermont Program for Quality in Health Care (VPQHC) to administer the system.
