What is the Health Value Dashboard?

The biennial Health Value Dashboard is a tool to track Ohio’s progress toward health value — a composite measure of Ohio’s performance on population health outcomes and healthcare spending. The Dashboard examines Ohio’s performance relative to other states and D.C., tracks change over time, identifies and explores health disparities and inequities in Ohio, highlighting evidence-informed strategies that can be implemented to improve Ohio’s performance.


Where does Ohio rank?

  • Ohio ranks 44 out of 50 states and the District of Columbia (D.C.) on health value. This means that Ohioans are living less healthy lives and spending more on health care than people in most other states.
  • Ohio ranks in the bottom quartile on 28.3% of ranked metrics and in the top quartile on 8.5% of ranked metrics.

How can Ohio improve?

Ohio policymakers have many options to build on Ohio’s assets to create opportunities for prosperity and well-being throughout the state.
