HPIO releases 2024 Health Value Dashboard

Ohio ranks 44 on health outcomes, spending

(COLUMBUS, Ohio) – The sixth edition of the Health Policy Institute of Ohio’s Health Value Dashboard, which will be publicly released next week, found that Ohio ranks 44 on heath value compared to other states and D.C. That means that Ohioans continue to live less healthy lives and spend more on health care than people in most other states.

The report, along with additional resources, will be posted Tuesday, April 9 on HPIO’s website

The Dashboard is a tool to track Ohio’s progress toward health value — a composite measure of performance on population health outcomes and healthcare spending. The Dashboard includes more than 100 data metrics on population health, healthcare spending and five additional areas that contribute to health value, plus profiles of groups of Ohioans who face discrimination and obstacles to health and well-being.

The Dashboard is designed for policymakers and other public- and private-sector leaders to examine Ohio’s performance relative to other states, track change over time and identify and explore health disparities and inequities in Ohio.

In analyzing Dashboard data, HPIO identified four policy priorities to improve health value:

  • Mental well-being
  • Tobacco and cannabis prevention
  • Healthcare affordability
  • Creating opportunities to thrive

HPIO is hosting a free webinar on the release of the Dashboard from 11:30 to 1 p.m. on Thursday, April 11. More details and registration information are available here.
