Driving Collective Impact for Community Health

Building an equitable, health-focused region for all citizens is a priority across Greater Cincinnati. Partners are coming together to implement solutions that improve healthcare, connect with social services, and ensure healthier neighborhoods – making Cincinnati a place where all citizens want to live, work, learn, and play.

This is the technology that drives it all.
