Chairman and Founder, TMIT: TMIT is a non-profit medical research organization driving adoption of healthcare performance-improvement solutions. 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.

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.
