es of the TeamSTEPPS program. The first generation of TeamSTEPPS, called the Crew Resource Management (CRM) program, was developed by a former Top Gun Instructor and a group of commercial airline pilots, former astronauts, physicians, nurses and risk managers. The program has proven to significantly and measurably reduce errors, increase patient and employee satisfaction, and cut healthcare costs.

Steve Harden, CEO of LifeWings says, "Our mission for this collaboration with the Tennessee Center for Patient Safety is to help make Tennessee hospitals, already some of the best in the country, the safest hospitals in the world. This is our home state, and we take great pride in helping our hospitals be the best.”

Charlotte Burns, former CEO of Hardin Medical Center (HMC) in Savannah, TN, where the LifeWings TeamSTEPPS program already has been implemented, confirms, “Teamwork is the key to improving patient safety. The LifeWings team has melded the best practices of high reliability organizations, such as commercial and military aviation, and thoughtfully adapted those practices for use in healthcare organizations for safer patient care. Partnering with LifeWings to utilize its program of applying safety principles from the aviation industry to the healthcare setting turned out to be one of the greatest changes HMC could have made."
