Combining Six Sigma principles and radiology best practices to minimize transition risk and achieve quality goals.
Quality is non-negotiable. The only way to improve is to be accountable. That’s the Foundation way. Your expectations are high. That’s why we developed and continue to improve upon the most successful patient-oriented hybrid radiology model – the Foundation Model. Resolve fragmented services, integrate technology platforms, boost poor response times and bridge subspecialty gaps that chip away at your quality and reputation.
Academic-level radiology subspecialists help your Academic Medical Center, IDN or Community Hospital gain a competitive edge and enable you to focus on patient care. This begins with mutually agreed upon success criteria focused on your health system’s quality goals, which are aligned with appropriate measurable radiology services. Our own belief in efficiency and accountability, drives us to embrace Six Sigma principles as the cornerstone of our care delivery approach. Results are reported and reviewed with you quarterly. Improvements can be made quickly and best practices identified for broader use.
Years of experience implementing this model in over 30 hospitals have minimized any transition risks, so you can quickly begin realizing quality gains. Given the outstanding results our hybrid radiology model generates, a greater risk is doing nothing.
Foundation’s internal quality processes proactively address best practices from the Joint Commission and the American College of Radiology. Our pillars of strategic Radiology (Quality, Service, Reporting and Communication) help health systems of all types meet their strategic goals. Improving relationships with ER physicians and providing strong onsite radiology leadership are common priorities, as are service expansion. For instance, the Foundation model is proven to stimulate the growth of interventional and diagnostic radiology service lines, enhance women’s imaging services and build market share. Time and again our customers have consistently realized the improvement you strive to achieve.
Service Is a Specialty
Our radiology solution impacts care through heightened focus on immediate, critical findings. Efficient processes and support staff enable radiologists to deliver clinically relevant reads for emergency, inpatient and outpatient cases with expedited turn-around times and significantly lower error rates.
Transparency – Not Optional
Understanding exactly what quality means to any healthcare organization is vital to care delivery outcomes. Foundation regularly reports on the results of reviews to clients, including any discrepancies, with a focus on those that are clinically relevant. Additionally, reported data can provide information on the most important referral sources, how to augment them and minimize leakage.
Patient health and welfare are the tenets of our mission. The Foundation model facilitates and assures onsite radiologist leadership that develops and maintains relationships across the enterprise. Our physicians have direct contact with community and hospital medical staff to strengthen communication and patient care.
On-demand access for treating physicians is a vital component in providing the most emergent patients and encouraging more meaningful consultations. Our subspecialists are always just one call away.
