AJMC® in the Press, October 23, 2020

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

An article by EHRIntelligence cited a study published in the October 2020 issue of The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®). The study, “Inpatient-Outpatient Shared Electronic Health Records: Telemedicine and Laboratory Follow-up After Hospital Discharge,” found that a seamlessly shared inpatient-outpatient electronic health record was associated with greater rates of postdischarge follow-up delivered through telemedicine or laboratory monitoring and without an in-person office visit.

A piece posted by BenefitsPro referenced an article published on AJMC.com, the website of AJMC®. The article, “How Has COVID-19 Affected Mental Health, Severity of Stress Among Employees,” examined findings from a study by mental health provider Ginger, in which nearly 7 in 10 employees indicated that the coronavirus disease 2019 pandemic has been the most stressful time of their entire professional career, aligning with stark increases in new prescriptions of antidepressant, antianxiety, and anti-insomnia medications.
