OHA aspires to lead the nation in quality improvement on key issues as identified by OHA members to address the state’s most expensive and pressing health issues. OHA's statewide initiatives have been nationally recognized by the American Hospital Association, Joint Commission and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid.
Ohio hospital leaders and clinical experts work with OHA through three organizations: OHA’s Institute for Health Innovation, the OHA Board of Trustees’ Clinical Advisory Committee and OHA’s Physician Leadership Council. Through these organization we develop appropriate strategies to accomplish the strategic plan’s quality objectives.
