Anna Nergardh, Inquiry Chair, Swedish Government; Sweden

Former Inquiry Chair on Integrated Care for the Swedish Government; Sweden

Anna Nergårdh was appointed by the Swedish government in March 2017 as Inquiry Chair with a task of proposing how to restructure the Swedish healthcare system in a more modern direction; including focus on Primary care, Preventive care and Person centered care. The inquiry extended to January 2021, and published during that time five reports. Several of the inquiries proposals have already been included in the Swedish health care regulation. One of the guiding principles of the inquiry came to be cooperation and collaboration between different stake holders, levels and organisations in the health care system, and also with the surrounding community – a “closer care”.

Nergårdh is a physician and specialist in cardiology and internal medicine. She has been Chief Medical Officer and Deputy County Council Director in Stockholm County Council, as well as Head of Operations at Södersjukhuset, where she also served as head of the cardiovascular clinic.

She has several board assignments with healthcare association and is, among other things, a board member of the Swedish National Board of Health and Welfare.
