For the seventh year, The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®) will publish its annual special issue on health information technology (health IT), one of the best-read issues of the year. Submissions for the issue, which will be published this winter, will be accepted through August 2017.

CRANBURY, N.J.—There is still time to submit original research and informed commentary articles for the 2017 health information technology (health IT) issue. For the original Call for Papers and information on how to submit a manuscript, click here.

Jacob Reider, MD, FAAFP, CEO of the Alliance for Better Health, will serve as special guest editor-in-chief of The American Journal of Managed Care® health IT issue. Dr. Reider, former Deputy National Coordinator and Chief Medical Officer at the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), has published on the use of technology to promote the Triple Aim, bringing better health and better care at a lower cost to the U.S. populations.

Dr. Reider is a family physician who now leads an organization focused on care transformation for Medicaid members and the uninsured in upstate New York.

He previously was Chief Medical Informatics Officer at Allscripts, a developer of electronic health record technology for practices and hospitals. During the Obama administration, he served in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, including time as Deputy National Coordinator and Chief Medical officer at ONC. Dr. Reider served in several private sector positions before joining the Alliance for Better Health in December 2016.

A graduate of Hampshire College, he received his medical degree from Albany Medical College.


Dr. Reider offers that, “health IT is the foundation of care delivery transformation. It is for this reason that the optimization of health IT remains a bipartisan issue: nobody would argue that great health IT won’t support the Triple Aim.”

“I’m honored to be participating in the crafting of this edition of AJMC®, and I am especially interested in seeing submissions that focus on interoperability, usability, safety, and innovations that support new models of care,” Dr. Reider said.
