CareSource Innovation Recognized with Pinnacle Award

September 29th, 2021 | 1 min read


When CareSource helped launch and coordinate the Dayton-Montgomery County Digital Equity Initiative, the goal was simple: improve access to online workforce development, education and telehealth for our members and residents in our public housing community. The program, initially funded by a $2 million CARES Act grant, distributed 902 laptops and provided broadband access to nearly 1,900 residents of five low-income housing communities. CareSource provided volunteers to distribute the devices and contributed $400,000 to support the project’s long-term sustainability.

Now, The Ohio Association of Health Care Plans (OAHP) has taken notice of the project and awarded CareSource with the Pinnacle Award for 2021. The award, given annually, recognizes OAHP member plans for innovative approaches to addressing challenges in health care.

The awards were announced at OAHP’s annual convention in Columbus. “We’re proud of the work that all our health plans do to help their members live healthier and fuller lives,” said Kelly O’Reilly, OAHP president and chief executive officer. “We’re honoring CareSource for the truly special contributions the company has made to increasing digital equity in health care.”
