For more than 100 years, OHA has built a remarkable legacy of collaboration and advocacy to sustain the vitality of Ohio hospitals. OHA has long fueled regional collaboratives and other hospital efforts with data, education and expertise forging a long history of convening hospital members and other partners to identify opportunities, provide viable solutions and spread the resulting best practices across the state.
OHA joined two other state hospital associations in 2019 to launch Q3 Health Innovation Partners, a new joint venture to improve health quality and patient safety.
Established in 2015, the Institute for Health Innovation of the Ohio Hospital Association is dedicated to providing resources to develop and implement strategies focused in the areas of: Accelerating Health Care Quality, Integrating Transitions of Patient Care, and Advancing Community Health.
OHA is one of 16 national, regional or state hospital associations, Quality Improvement Organizations and health system organizations selected to continue efforts in reducing preventable hospital-acquired conditions and readmissions.
OPSI is dedicated to improving patient safety in Ohio. The Institute was founded by the Ohio Hospital Association, the Ohio State Medical Association and the Ohio Osteopathic Association. Through this collaboration and common effort, OPSI has the ability to work with Ohio hospitals and health care workers to improve health care outcomes in Ohio.
OHA leads statewide and regional initiatives for emergency preparedness and trauma programs that include the coordination and implementation of federal and state grant funding. These cooperative projects are designed to improve surge capacity and enhance community and hospital preparedness for public health emergencies.
OHA is proud to join the hospital associations in New Jersey and Pennsylvania to establish the Q3 Health Innovation Partners, a new joint venture to improve health quality and patient safety. Launched during National Health Care Quality Week 2019, Q3HIP will build on the quality improvement track records of each of the three associations.
