October 2012—AHRA would like to recognize Philips Healthcare for their continued leadership partnership over the past few years. Philips has been a partner of AHRA since 2007, and a premier partner since 2010. In 2010, Philips and AHRA reached a partnership totaling $250,000 (payable over a five-year period) in which Philips would fund several AHRA initiatives, including: branding and expansion of the “radiology safety” section of the AHRA Online Institute, an education symposia at each AHRA Annual Conference from 2010 through 2014, and educational scholarships to allow medical students, residents, fellows, and other healthcare providers in training (students) to attend our educational conferences.
Without Philips Healthcare’s investment, many of these tremendous offerings would not be available to our members. Carlos Vasquez states, “AHRA is very thankful for Philips Healthcare’s leadership and support over the past several years. We were able to establish a mutually beneficial partnership, and watch the partnership grow over time. AHRA is extremely pleased with their partnership with Philips.”
“This era of healthcare reform and the changes it entails brings additional importance to the partnership between Philips and AHRA. As a leading imaging solutions provider, Philips values collaborative dialog with AHRA members to provide us with a better understanding of the challenges you face, and to help you implement solutions that will address them,” states Nancy Gillen, Vice President of Marketing, Imaging Systems, Philips Healthcare.
AHRA looks forward to continuing the relationship they have developed with Philips over the next several years, and acknowledges them for their visionary leadership in radiology and imaging management.
