Coverage of our peer-reviewed research and news reporting in the healthcare and mainstream press.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette mentioned a study published in the September 2018 issue of The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®), “High-Touch Care Leads to Better Outcomes and Lower Costs in a Senior Population.” The study concluded that a high-touch preventive model providing frequent and easy access to primary, specialty, pharmacy, and ancillary care can improve healthcare utilization and reduce healthcare costs in a senior population in spite of a higher frequency of outpatient visits. The study was also highlighted in an article from St. Pete Catalyst and Global Banking & Finance Review.

An article from Patient Engagement HIT on patient satisfaction during the bill pay process cited a study published in the June 2017 issue of AJMC®. The study, “Patients’ Views on Price Shopping and Price Transparency,” interviewed patients with access to a price transparency website and found that despite a positive opinion of price shopping in theory, respondents reported barriers to doing so in reality.
