Ohio Gov. John Kasich says the state can do more with data to improve healthcare and adapt to a changing economy. Kasich highlighted his new budget proposal’s technology plans in an event at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland today.
Kasich’s budget creates a new position: chief innovation officer, who will try to connect Ohio’s education sector with new technologies. That person will lead the new Ohio Institute of Technology, which is budgeted at $750,000 a year.
