MARCH 2017

3/22 –  HPIO Webinar on the 2017 Health Value Dashboard [Online]

More details
Join us for a review and discussion of the Health Policy Institute of Ohio’s 2017 Health Value Dashboard, which ranks states and the District of Columbia on a combination of population health and healthcare spending metrics. According to the Dashboard, Ohio ranks 46th in the nation in health value.

The Dashboard is unique in its emphasis on “health value,” rather than on population health outcomes alone. No other national rankings factor in the impact of healthcare spending. The Dashboard also takes a comprehensive approach in looking at health by evaluating social, economic and physical environments – which are significant contributors to overall health. Based on an in-depth analysis of 118 metrics, the Dashboard shows that Ohioans live less healthy lives (43rd in population health) and spend more on health care (31st in healthcare spending) than other states.

The webinar will review Ohio’s performance, and highlight Ohio’s challenges, strengths and evidence-informed approaches to improving health value.

Online event. 2 p.m.-3 p.m. EST

4/7 – The path forward: What comes next for health policy? Seminar 1 [Online]

More details
With new federal leadership, there are likely to be significant reforms to health and healthcare policy in the U.S. The new executive administration and many in Congress have expressed strong interest in repealing and replacing the Affordable Care Act. However, the path forward is unclear, as are the potential impacts to states.

This series of three online seminars will provide snapshots of federal health policy decision-making throughout 2017. National and Ohio-based speakers will address current health policy debates in Congress and the White House and the implications of federal-level changes for state policymaking and Ohioans.

Speaker: David Jones
Assistant Professor, Health Law, Policy & Management, Boston University
