Collaboration to Consortium

Bridging the gap between government and industry

TLI has a wide breadth of experience related to consortium development and management.  As members of the former BADER consortium, AMSUS, and MTEC we understand how consortiums foster innovation and bridge the gap between government and industry in allowing specific initiatives to move forward.

Managing a consortium presents a unique challenge with obstacles to good collaboration and shared vision. A consortium arrangement allows for greater inclusion of technical and sectoral strengths from multiple organizations, as well as the potential for much greater collective impact through the synergy of the consortium.

Our expertise lies in coordinating multiple organizations, aligning different organizational systems, programmatic goals and objectives.

Example of our consortium experience include:

Federal Health Futures 2045

Federal Health Futures 2045 – TLI convened all four surgeon generals and their staff to discuss the future of federal and military health care to the year 2045 and discussed activities which were future independent such as expansion of research, global health engagement, and humanitarian assistance. Some of the activities discussed at this collaborative translated into new programs for the DoD and VA. 

Prosthetics Registry Consortium

In collaboration with AOPA and the Mayo Clinic Motion Analysis Lab, TLI developed the concept and framework for a consortium to support a prosthetics registry for the purpose of collecting data related to limb loss and limb preservation surgeries with the goal of using the data collected to determine which procedures and treatment plans were resulting in improved health outcomes and quality of life for the patient. 

Health Equity and Prosperity 

In partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, TLI facilitated an initial partners meeting and the Assembly for Health Equity and Prosperity at the University of Maryland with over 330 participants.

Partners in the collaborative project also included:  the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s 100 Million Healthier Lives, Healthy Companies International, National Collaborative for Health Equity, Academy Health, Prevention Institute, Community Initiatives, Stanford Center for Population Health Sciences, and University of Maryland Center for Health Equity and the Health Advocates in Reach and Research.

Chronic Pain Breakthrough Collaborative

TLI personnel launched and managed this collaborative with a plan to assist the many Americans who suffer from chronic pain, and to support the health care leaders working to reverse the opioid epidemic.

With over 40 deaths each day from opioid overdoses, it’s clear that providers need more options for their patients. As a result of the work completed through this consortium, TLI has developed a community-based approach to addressing the opioid epidemic which is gaining public attention.
