Ohio 46th in Health Value

The Health Policy Institute of Ohio’s “Health Value Dashboard” is a tool to track Ohio’s progress towards health value, a composite measure of Ohio’s performance on population health outcomes and health care spending.

The dashboard examines Ohio’s rank and trend performance relative to other states and highlights gaps in outcomes between groups for some of Ohio’s most at-risk populations.

Ohio ranks 46th among the states and the District of Columbia in the index. Ohio has high rates of addiction and tobacco use, problems with access to care in major areas of the state, and insufficient spending on prevention, says the report. 4/3/2019
