Technological innovations have the potential to improve population health while reducing healthcare spending. In Ohio, new technology is already beginning to change the way we approach the state’s greatest health challenges, including:

  • Telehealth services that increase access to mental health and addiction services
  • Transportation initiatives that enable better access to jobs and active living environments, while improving air quality
  • Data analytics tools that identify issues related to the social determinants of health

This forum will explore the role of technology in fostering innovative approaches to improving health and reducing health disparities, with a focus on addressing Ohio’s greatest health challenges: mental health and addiction, infant mortality and chronic disease.

Speakers will discuss policy implications and how to balance the promise of these innovations with policy concerns.
