Patient safety is a goal shared by all imaging administrators. AHRA & Toshiba recognize the critical need for not only patient safety programs but for funding to make these programs a reality.
The AHRA & Toshiba Putting Patients First Program will provide seven grants in 2015 to fund programs, training, or seminars aimed at improving pediatric or adult patient care and safety within diagnostic imaging. The programs funded by these grants will be used to create a best-practices tool to share with other hospitals and institutions.
As in years past, six grants of up to $7,500 are available to be awarded to single-site hospitals and imaging centers. Three of these grants will be awarded for projects that improve the safety and comfort of pediatric imaging. The other three grants will be awarded for projects that improve overall patient care and safety in imaging.
One additional grant of up to $20,000 is available to be awarded to an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) or hospital system.
Completed applications are due October 13, 2015. For additional information, including how to apply, click here. Winners will be announced in December 2015, in conjunction with the RSNA conference. Applying is easy.
