Purpose: Founded in 1995, The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®) provides a forum for peer-reviewed literature on healthcare outcomes research. It is an independent, peer-reviewed publication dedicated to disseminating clinical information to managed care physicians, clinical decision makers, and other healthcare professionals. Its aim is to stimulate scientific communication in the ever-evolving field of managed care. The Journal addresses a broad range of issues relevant to clinical decision making in a cost-constrained environment and examines the impact of clinical, management, and policy interventions and programs on healthcare and economic outcomes.
Evaluation Process: All original articles are subjected to rigorous peer review by leading clinical investigators, health services researchers, and clinical epidemiologists. Manuscripts are also evaluated to determine the real-world relevance of the information they contain. In addition to original research, the Journal publishes review articles, commentaries, trends from the field, editorials, and letters to the editor. AJMC® can publish only a fraction of the papers it receives each year (approximately 35%).
Readership: The Journal circulates to approximately 30,000 individuals with important decision-making responsibilities affecting the access and utilization of healthcare resources. Our audience includes medical directors, pharmacy and therapeutics committee members, pharmacy directors, physicians, corporate benefits managers, and other healthcare professionals across 6 market segments: (1) HMO/PPO/IHOs; (2) hospitals; (3) long-term care; (4) PBMs; (5) VA/government; and (6) employers.
