AJMC® in the Press, May 29, 2020

Coverage of our peer-reviewed research and news reporting in the health care and mainstream press.

A piece by RevCycleIntelligence referenced a study published in the May 2020 issue of The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®), titled “Accountable Care Organizations Are Increasingly Led by Physician Groups Rather Than Hospital Systems.” The study indicated that the growing shift toward physician-led accountable care organizations (ACOs) rather than hospital systems since 2015 requires policies that address the characteristic strengths and weaknesses of physician-led ACOs.

An article posted on amny.com cited a study published in a supplement of AJMC®, “The Essential Role of Community Pharmacies in Expanding Access to Vaccines.” The study highlighted how pharmacists are ideally positioned to overcome barriers to improving adult vaccination rates, which extend from a lack of public awareness regarding the need for vaccines and the ongoing threat of vaccine-preventable diseases to challenges regarding financial/reimbursement systems for providers.
