AJMC® in the Press, October 30, 2020

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

An article by Cardiovascular Business cited an article 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. The study was additionally cited by HealthcareITNews.

A piece posted by MobiHealthNews referenced an article published on AJMC.com, the website of AJMC®. The article, “Racial Disparities Persist in Maternal Morbidity, Mortality and Infant Health,” examined review findings presented at the American Diabetes Association’s 80th Scientific Sessions, which indicated that American women die in childbirth at a higher rate than in any other developed country, while non-Hispanic Black women are more than 3 times more likely to have a maternal death than white women in the United States.

A press release posted by Digital Journal cited an article from AJMC®’s sister site The Center for Biosimilars® titled “As Patents Expire, Oncology Biosimilars Poised to Expand, Authors Say.” The article noted that by 2023, patents on nearly 20 oncology biologics will expire, which could lead to more biosimilars in cancer care and therefore reduced costs.
