MCLEAN, Va.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Thought Leadership & Innovation Foundation (TLI), a not-for-profit organization that works at the nexus of science, technology and public health, is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the first national Healthcare Thought Leadership and Innovation Month in the Health Observances & Recognition Days calendar published by The Society for Health Care Strategy & Market Development (SHSMD), part of the American Hospital Association (AHA).

During the month-long event, TLI released Part One of “At the Intersection of Thought Leadership & Innovation: Where Meaningful Healthcare Change Happens” and today announces the release of Part Two, now available here. TLI also conducted an impactful webinar featuring limb loss patient Ariel Rigney, MPA, a self-proclaimed nonprofit “nerd,” athlete, world traveler and adventure-seeker, Bill Oldham, President, TLI, and Dr. Kenton Kaufman, Ph.D., PE, Director, Motion Analysis Laboratory, Mayo Clinic, titled “Exciting Breakthroughs in the Future of Limb Loss Care for 2,100,000 Americans.”

“The webinar focused on the national Limb Loss & Preservation Registry (Registry), which has entered a major new phase, under contract with the Mayo Clinic and funded with federal funds from the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, National Institutes of Health and Department of Health and Human Services,” says Reed Hartley, Executive Director, TLI. “The Registry addresses the lack of evidence-based data for this underserved population, demonstrates how better data is critical for effective programs and execution, and highlights how providing the fundamental building blocks for sustainable progress can improve healthcare in the United States.”

Part Two of “At the Intersection of Thought Leadership & Innovation: Where Meaningful Healthcare Change Happens” further explores TLI’s methodology and track record for deriving innovation from data and showcases extensive health services support for veterans through partnerships and projects, including the Uniformed Services University and Henry M. Jackson Foundation (HJF) for the Advancement of Military Medicine Building Health Military Communities (BHMC) on the Operation Live Well project.

“TLI drives the thinking behind processes to better support underserved populations most harshly impacted by society’s problems and embeds this value proposition across programs covering specific patient populations, broad healthcare issues and economic empowerment,” Hartley adds. “When grounded in data, innovation can lead to improved prevention, treatment and outcomes for those facing life-altering medical diagnoses.”
