The Center for Evidence‐Based Imaging (CEBI) is dedicated to achieving measurable improvements in the quality, safety and efficiency of care delivery, using innovative information technology solutions and change management strategies. Technology innovations span all processes of care relevant to imaging at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH), Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital (BWFH) and Dana Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI). Change management strategies address people, process, and technology issues to enable performance improvement. Extensive dashboard and data analytics tools enable continuous measurement and monitoring of key performance indicators to sustain gains, empower leaders and managers, and motivate further improvements.
