TMIT is producing inspiring multimedia stories to drive high performance care and improve patient safety in
hospitals by showcasing great role models emphasizing the positive rather than the negative. Stories
igniting hope and faith will include those told by consumers, front-line caregivers, clinical and non-clinical
leaders of hospitals, and international subject matter experts.
Certain broadcast programs will be shown globally, and then will be made available to hospital leadership,
front-line performance teams, and consumers. The series of "arc to action" stories will be told to inspire
both consumers in communities and hospital leaders to act locally.
