TMIT, Dr. Chuck Denham, and Patient Safety’s First Scandal?

For e-patients and others who list themselves on Texas Medical Institute of Technology‘s SpeakerLink, this very meaty post by Society of Hospital Medicine founder and world-renowned leader of the hospitalist movement Dr. Bob Wachter is required reading. After which, you will likely do some required thinking.

A short capture of the post’s purpose: Dr. Chuck Denham, founder of TMIT and the former head of the National Quality Forum‘s Safe Practices committee, has been accused of some very suspicious business practices. We’ll leave it up to you to decide whether or not to continue to list yourself on SpeakerLink. This might be the time to see about either asking TMIT to let SPM take over managing Speakerlink, or for SPM to build its own speaker portfolio platform.

  1. My vote: SPM should create its own “Speakerlink”-like service — clearly branded by SPM.

  2. Yay – now there’s two of us. It’s a MOVEMENT =)

  3. Well, now there’s THREE. SPM and Speakerlink seems a natural fit.
