A major barrier to adoption of patient safety solutions is the lack of financially responsible decision-support information.
This program provides models and examples that hospital leadership teams need in order to confidently "greenlight" investments
in patient safety. The "accountable care movement" represents a seismic shift in the multi-trillion dollar market from provider-centered
volume driven forces to patient-centered value-driven forces. Profit centers will become cost centers overnight – challenging
even the most sophisticated.
The Greenlight Network:
World class organizations and individual experts from quality, certification, and purchasing organizations
provide clinical, operational, and financial expertise and data. Employers and consumers will play an important role in our work and will be fully represented.
The Collaborative Initiatives: Greenlight Provider Models: Our leadership decision-support investment models will address
clinical, operational, and financial performance for typical hospitals and ambulatory care systems. They provide structure and flexibility: the structure
to address specific patient safety gaps, while providing the flexibility of givens, assumptions, and variables to adjust forecasts
for care providers' unique situations. The ultimate objective is to provide what is necessary for CFOs and finance teams to vote "yes"
to greenlight investment in patient safety initiatives, with the confidence in the ROI and financial impact of those programs.
"CFO-validated factors" will be developed through a consensus process with input from leading CFOs.
Consumer and Payer Decision Support Tools:
Our work will provide critical information so that patients and purchasers can choose the right providers at the right price so that
they will receive the right care in every community every single day. To view collaborator organizations' video clips from the TMIT

This website is dedicated to our 5 Rights of Imaging® Program. Our services include the following:
Concepts, tools, and resources that allow both consumers and caregivers to ensure that high performance imaging occurs with every patient encounter. Such tools include checklists, smartphone applications, and guides for both clinical personnel and consumers offered through our website.
Educational programs that generate education credits for caregivers and consumers that will entitle learners to earn certificates, college credits, and continuing education credits.
Webinars and national meetings will be undertaken for synchronous learning and to provide advisory support; and a learning management system will be provided to enable learners to gain new knowledge and skills asynchronously.
Business advisory services, including business analytics, to help caregivers and their patients ensure that they are making the Right Study choice; that the Right Order of the study is performed; that the study is undertaken in a manner following recommended guidelines the Right Way; and that the Right Report is generated that can drive the Right Action by caregivers and patients with the goal being the best outcome possible with the least risk.
Additionally, through our collaboratives we are performing numerous research activities in the field of medical imaging, especially to determine how much radiation has been given to a patient and how to maintain records of that information.
