The AHRA & Toshiba Putting Patients First program seeks to improve pediatric and adult patient care and safety in diagnostic imaging through an innovative grant making program. The program will provide seven grants in 2011 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. Details of the available grants include the following:

  • Six grants of up to $7,500 are available to be awarded to single-site hospitals and imaging centers. Three grants will be awarded for projects that improve the safety and comfort of pediatric imaging. Three grants will be awarded for projects that improve overall patient care and safety in imaging.
  • One grant of up to $20,000 is available to be awarded to an Integrated Delivery Network (IDN) or hospital system. The grant will be awarded for projects that improve overall patient care and safety in imaging implemented across the IDN/hospital system.
