The TMIT National Research Test Bed of leaders and caregivers in more than 3,100 hospitals that has organically grown from the Premier Innovation Institute of 1,700 hospitals co-founded and co-led by Denham in the 1990s that was ultimately spun out to his organization to run independently. The mission of TMIT is identical to that of HCC's, which has been the major funder of TMIT over the years. TMIT and HCC are served by more than 500 clinical and administrative subject matter experts from a number of our nation's best academic and front-line institutions, as well as industry innovators from multiple sectors. This network of experts has been built over 30 years. TMIT Communities of Practice are served by online knowledge management systems found at www.SafetyLeaders.org TMIT has established national and statewide collaborative programs in performance improvement, in association with groups such as state hospital associations and their members. TMIT produced the 2010 award-winning documentary, Chasing Zero: Winning the War on Healthcare Harm, on the Discovery Channel. TMIT's 2012 documentary, Surfing the Healthcare Tsunami: Bring Your Best Board, focuses on hospital governance, administrative, medical and community leadership. The cause is to move the market from “provider-centered, volume-driven transactions to patient-centered value-driven care.”
Responding to a need expressed by patient advocates, in 2011 TMIT launched SpeakerLink®, a free matching system to link patient/family speakers with hospital “seekers” who are interested in bringing patients and families in to their quality programs to help put the focus on patient safety and performance improvement. Denham founded pilot programs that are still in their infancy, including CareMoms™, CareKids™ and CareUniversity™, which are focused on helping families survive healthcare harm and waste.
