Lima, Ohio (WIMA) - Kettering Health Network is collaborating with four of Ohio’s leading healthcare systems to create new ways to provide services for Ohioans.

The Network has joined Health Innovations Ohio (HIO) an independent- collaborative organization that was formed in 2012.

HIO’s founding health systems together reach more than 22 percent of Ohio’s healthcare market- and with the addition of Kettering- HIO’s members will reach close to 34-percent.

HIO is creating a new model of healthcare delivery that focuses on continued- coordinated care- and influences behavior changes that prevent illness.
