Health Transformation in 2015
Thank you to the thousands of Ohioans who directly participated in the state's 2015 health transformation activities. After several years of intense work, we are beginning to see significant signs of improvement. In 2015, Ohio's uninsured rate was cut in half, fewer infant deaths were reported than at any point in at least 75 years, and Ohio Medicaid led the nation in prosecuting fraud and transitioning individuals out of institutions. The Kasich Administration will leverage these gains to address the challenges that remain, for example to reduce the number of black infant deaths and continue the fight against drug abuse. Thank you in advance for your leadership in 2016 to help the state address these issues and work together to further improve overall health system performance.
