In the true spirit of collaboration, five of Ohio’s most highly regarded health systems are turning our considerable expertise to creating new ways of providing health services that will result in higher quality, better health and greater value for Ohioans.
Mercy Health (Cincinnati), Mount Carmel Health System (Columbus), Summa Health System (Akron), and University Hospitals (Cleveland) jointly founded Health Innovations Ohio (HIO) in 2012 as an independent organization designed to realize our shared vision for a new model of care. In 2014, Kettering Health Network (Kettering) joined as a member.
Inspired by our shared commitment to accountable, high quality, cost-effective care, we are reaching across our organizational boundaries to collaborate on initiatives that benefit residents in our communities.
We are healthcare experts building a new, fully integrated and aligned model of care to achieve superior quality, health and value for Ohioans.
Through HIO, we are learning from each other and sharing best practices for managing the health of individuals and groups. Through HIO, we are working to improve care outcomes and reduce costs by aligning services and incentives across workplace health programs, doctors’ offices and hospitals. As we carry these innovative practices across Ohio – within and between the communities we serve – we have the potential to transform care throughout our state.
Although we will continue to operate independently, HIO represents four like-minded, future-focused organizations which have come together in a statewide collaboration to create more effective and efficiently coordinated care in the midst of a fragmented healthcare delivery system. We are committed to a new future for healthcare in Ohio.
