Dayton | Ohio | 2018 | Market Overview (Event Driven)

Publish date: October 2018

Dayton, though not as sophisticated or innovative as other large cities in Ohio like Cleveland or Columbus, Dayton is making modest inroads towards value-based care, population health management, and payment reform. Two distinct health systems, Kettering Health Network and Dayton Children’s Hospital, recently formed clinically integrated networks to allow them to align independent providers in the market in order to engage in value-based contracts. ACOs are somewhat popular in the market but growth there has been flat recently, as health systems have prioritized building new facilities, hiring more providers, and expanding patient access to care; Dayton’s building boom will continue into the next few years at least, with hospital, health center, and clinic construction projects all currently in the works. The proliferation of urgent and convenient care sites has continued as health systems push further into areas surrounding Dayton, including Troy and Enon, as the health system arms race for market share rages on. CDHP interest and uptake remains high in the market, and HMO enrollment could be due for an increase as employers and employees in Dayton become more and more willing to accept narrow networks for a cheaper price point.
