The Council Learns About Innovation and Ingenuity in Israel on its 13th International Health Care Mission
In 2019, the Council held its 13th International Health Care Mission in Israel. Unlike previous mission trips this one had a theme: Innovation. While on this trip the Council and its delegation were able to see firsthand how and why Israel is quickly becoming a meaningful global leader in health care. They were able to see the advancements in Israel’s digital health, medtech, and biotech sectors. Attendees had the unique opportunity to meet with Israeli entrepreneurs and discuss the delicate balance in the government and private sector relationship in health care. We anticipate the information gathered, and the relationships built during this trip will have a lasting impact on the Nashville health care community.
After the trip, we heard from our members who were able to attend that the ideas they saw being implemented in Israel has only encouraged them to continue innovating and striving to push the American health care system forward.
We are proud to continue the tradition of exploring the world’s health care systems in order to fulfill our mission of serving as a catalyst for leadership and innovation.

The Council visits the UK for its 12th International Health Care Mission
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.
