    AHRA, Toshiba offer education, patient care grants
    AHRA: The Association for Medical Imaging Management has announced the fifth year of its Putting Patients First Program, which is designed to help hospitals and imaging centers build new or expand upon existing education and patient care initiatives.

    Putting Patients First grants provide healthcare facilities with the resources to improve imaging quality and safety for patients and are funded by an unrestricted educational grant from Toshiba America Medical Systems.

    The AHRA & Toshiba Putting Patients First Program provides six grants of up to $7,500 each to hospitals and imaging centers and an additional grant of up to $20,000 to an integrated delivery network (IDN) to fund programs, trainings or seminars aimed at improving patient care and safety in CT, MR, ultrasound, x-ray and vascular imaging. Three of the $7,500 grants are awarded for projects that improve pediatric imaging, while the other three are awarded for projects that improve overall patient care and safety in imaging. The grant of up to $20,000 is awarded to an IDN or hospital system for projects that improve overall patient care and safety in imaging across the IDN/hospital system. All winning facilities will then develop and share their best practices.

    “The Putting Patients First grants provide healthcare facilities with resources that otherwise might not be available,” Luann Culbreth, president, AHRA, said in a release. “These grants allow hospitals and health systems to implement patient safety or educational programs to enhance the care they provide to their patients and communities.”

    Putting Patients First applicants are judged on their program plan and ability to share best practices. The applicants’ programs should address one or more of the following:

    •Reducing radiation and/or contrast dose;
    •Reducing the need for sedation;
    •Improving communication with patients regarding the process;
    •Improving patient comfort; or
    •Improving the overall clinical pathway
    The deadline to apply is October 15.
