The Center for HOPES’s mission is to collaborate with OSU researchers and community partners to conduct rigorous, policy-relevant research.  We leverage advances in data science with knowledge of health policy and the health care system to address complex health and health care problems, including integrating social needs within the health care system.  HOPES is the community’s partner and OSU’s home for health policy and health services research.  We provide evidence for policies and programs that work to improve health equity.

Our vision is for health policies to integrate population health as well as equitable and efficient distribution of health care in Ohio, the U.S., and worldwide.
