Health Care Delivery for the Medically Underserved in Nashville

Download this publicationIn April 2009, the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, Tennessee, engaged JSI to assess alternatives to meet the health care needs of the medically underserved and indigent citizens of the area, and to make recommendations to meet those needs more cost effectively. This final report presents JSI's findings and recommendations from the research conducted by JSI both in the Nashville and Davidson areas as well as external research of other health care safety-net systems across the country.

JSI's primary recommendation is that in order to provide a more cost-effective and sustainable model for the safety-net system in Nashville and Davidson County, the community needs a strong leading entity that is responsible for successfully responding to the needs of the entire safety-net system in a cohesive, coordinated manner.
