Putting Patients First

Putting Patients First

The AHRA & Toshiba Putting Patients First program seeks to improve patient care and safety in diagnostic imaging for pediatrics and adults through offering grants to fund programs, trainings and seminars at local hospitals and imaging centers. The winning grant programs are selected by the AHRA and are dedicated to improving patient care and developing best imaging practices in the areas of CT, MR, Ultrasound, X-ray and Vascular imaging.

The 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.

Voluntary Special Seismic Certification Pre-approval Program

Voluntary Special Seismic Certification Pre-approval Program

Feel safer knowing that your system has been put through the paces of one of the nation’s most stringent safety checks. Toshiba participates in this seismic certification program through California’s Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD). Toshiba has aggressively tested its equipment at levels above the industry norm and takes into account testing results to improve future product design.
