Report from Health Policy Institute of Ohio Ranks the State 46th in the Nation in Health Value

The Health Policy Institute of Ohio (HPIO) has released its latest edition of the Health Value Dashboard, which ranks states and Washington, DC, on a combination of population health and healthcare spending metrics. To access the full report or portions of it, click here.

According to the report, Ohio ranks 46th in the nation in health value. And, data show that Ohioans live less healthy lives (43rd in population health) and spend more on health care (31st in healthcare spending) than other states.

Like most states, however, Ohio’s performance is moving in the right direction, with more metrics that improved than worsened in recent years.

The 2017 Health Value Dashboard is the second edition of the rankings—the first edition was released in late 2014. At that time, Ohio ranked 47th in health value. The data collection and analysis for this recent dashboard was conducted in partnership with the Ohio University Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs. The metrics were selected by a wide array of experts who participated in an advisory group and workgroups convened by HPIO.
