Now is the time to think differently about health and healthcare
Another report, another low ranking.
In its new report, the Health Policy Institute of Ohio’s Health Value Dashboard ranked Ohio 46th in overall health value compared to all 50 states and the District of Columbia. Incredibly, despite Ohioans spending more on healthcare than people in most other states, we are less healthy.
We simply can’t afford to let this continue.
It’s time to be disruptive— and move our region off the bottom of these health rankings each and every year. It is only then that we can realize our potential to be one of the healthiest communities in the country.

First Step Home honors bi3 at annual awards ceremony
We are so honored by First Step Home’s recognition of our work at their award celebration this month.
bi3 partnered with First Step Home to fuel their vision of making it possible for a new mom to go through treatment and recovery while staying with her baby in a safe, supported environment. The new care model helps women fighting addiction become the type of mothers they’d like to be, all while putting babies’ health at the forefront.
The program — in partnership with Good Samaritan Hospital — is a great example of bi3’s unique position to foster innovation that can transform health in Cincinnati.
