In 2017, the Council hosted its 12th International Health Care Mission in the United Kingdom. Unique to Nashville and one of only a few such initiatives nationwide, the mission brought together a diverse group of key health care business executives to establish relationships with leaders abroad, learn firsthand about the British health care delivery system, further position Nashville as an industry capital and set the stage for future collaborations.
For the first time, the Council partnered with the Marwood Group, a health care specialist advisory firm, to produce a white paper on the study findings. The piece builds on the diverse dialogue of those who attended the mission, including health system and political experts, business leaders, operators and individuals from the financial industry. It explores the content and themes developed through the study mission, highlighting the health system’s strengths and weaknesses and identifying areas of shared opportunity.
It is our hope that this piece will be useful, not only to those who attended the mission, but also to all Council members and stakeholders as we collaborate to improve health care through leadership and innovation.
