New rankings by state have just been posted  for performance on health outcomes and cost.  They show there is much room for improvement in Ohio. Specific problem areas are infant mortality (ranked 42) and smoking (ranked 43).

The glimmer of good news is that there is some improvement in recent years in mortality amenable to health care and cardiac heart disease, although performance has declined in several other areas, including obesity and diabetes.

To see the full report and and get more information, see ohio health dashboard. Thank you to our friends at the Health Policy Institute of Ohio for publishing the results.
