  1. I am confused about the role of AHRQ and where is stands in the HHS family of health agencies. Is it trying to become another FDA? Is it a patient safety organization (PSO)? Does it run PSOs? Does it interface with PSOs? Why is the AHRQ so intereted in HIT and the FDA is not? Would someone identify a PSO and how to report adverse HIT events to it? Thank you. Tonya
