The mission explored innovation in healthcare, and the role of digital and innovative technology in delivering better and more affordable patient care at home, within community settings and in hospitals. The program also examined future directions for medicine and patient healthcare.



Our trade mission was wonderful. We were inspired by the ‘chutzpah’ of our Israeli healthcare colleagues to solve problems and get things gone. We also learned so much about how to create a culture of innovation and the value it can have to both patient care and economically. The trip led to several strategic partnerships and personal friendships. I can’t wait to go back!
