June 2011

Greg Moody, Director of the Ohio Office of Health Transformation (OHT), will be the guest speaker at the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging's Annual Meeting on Friday, June 17, 2011. The event will be held from 3 pm to 5 pm at the Cleveland Skating Club, 2500 Kemper Road, Cleveland 44120.

Mr. Moody was appointed by Governor John Kasich in January 2011. OHT is responsible for Medicaid restructuring and cost-containment, exploring the expansion of work with private sector entities, and recommending a permanent health and human services structure for Ohio. Prior to joining OHT, Mr. Moody was a senior consultant at Health Management Associates, a national research and consulting firm that specializes in health care program and policy issues.

In his remarks, Mr. Moody will discuss the role of OHT in responding to challenges in the delivery and funding of health services.

The number of older adults and younger people with disabilities in Ohio continues to grow. At a time of increasing need, Ohio is faced with decreased state and federal revenues. Mr. Moody will discuss these challenges and the developing plans of OHT to address them.
