TN HIMSS is committed to working with national HIMSS on key issues facing healthcare leaders. Our Advocacy priorities include the following: 

  • Supporting Healthcare Transformation
  • Expanding Access to Quality Healthcare
  • Increasing Economic Opportunity
  • Making Communities Healthier

This month we want to focus on Making Communities Healthier by highlighting the work at NashvilleHealth, a non-profit organization started by Senator Bill Frist. The team at NashvilleHealth has partnered with the Metro Public Health Department to conduct a 12,000 household survey in Davidson County to better understand key influences on the determinants of our health: behavior, environment, preventative, and chronic health conditions. This first-of-a-kind survey will provide keen insights to Nashville business, government and health leaders on how to make the city a better place to live, work and play and can be replicated across the state in the years to come.  For more information, please visit
