Less than two months into President Donald Trump’s White House tenure, the Nashville Health Care Council’s Leadership Health Care (LHC) initiative led a group of more than 100 healthcare leaders on its annual two-day delegation to Washington, D.C. Among the delegates were Katie Reid and Sara Goodwin of Kraft Healthcare Consulting, LLC. Scott Mertie, president of Kraft Healthcare, serves on the board of Leadership Health Care.
This year’s event, held on March 13 and 14, provided delegates with an inside look at the state of healthcare policy under the new Administration and predictions about what developments may unfold to impact Nashville’s $78 billion healthcare industry. The delegation featured discussions with members of Congress, Administration officials and national thought leaders about key healthcare policy issues, the state of investor-owned community hospitals, healthcare information technology and much more.
