The Child and Family Health Collaborative of Ohio “Collaborative”, was established in March of 2017 as a social enterprise of Ohio Children’s Alliance, a not-for-profit organization itself founded in 1973.
The purpose of the Collaborative is to create opportunities for Ohio Children’s Alliance member organizations to collaborate with Health Plans, health care organizations, and government agencies. We leverage collaborative opportunities to innovate and improve health and social outcomes, achieve savings, foster health integration, and establish administrative efficiencies.
The Collaborative is governed by the Ohio Children’s Alliance Board of Directors and a Governing Council chaired by Mark Mecum (President), Bradley Bahl (Vice President), Gary Stammler (Treasurer), and Susan Ballard (Secretary).
