Healthcare Transparency –
Ohio currently ranks near the bottom in legislation to provide healthcare transparency. Many people are surprised to learn that in healthcare, there is no correlation between cost and quality. Prices for medical services can vary greatly even for the same procedure, in the same area, within the same network. Quality and outcomes can vary just as greatly, with no relationship to price. The only way to know whether you’re getting good care at a reasonable price is to see the pricing and outcome data.
Ohio’s Drug Epidemic –
Ohio need a top to bottom review on how we can better serve those with drug issues. Statistics show that heroin overdoses are on the rise in Huron and Lorain counties.We need to look for better ways to intervene early and to search out faith based and other successful programs to reduce drug dependency in our two county’s and throughout the state.
