AJMC in the Press, October 7, 2016

Highlights of our peer-reviewed research in the healthcare and mainstream press.

In Friday’s Morning eHealth daily report, POLITICO’s Darius Tahir discussed HIPAA in the age of cloud computing and mentioned a recent study in The American Journal of Managed Care (AJMC) that proposed expanding state prescription drug monitoring programs. The authors suggest expanding these programs to all prescription drugs, instead of just opiates.

Aledade’s report providing an inside look at the accountable care organizations (ACOs) the company has helped start continues to receive attention. As part of a Q&A with Aledade’s Farzad Mostashari, MD, Healthcare Informatics’ Rajiv Leventhal noted the report Mostashari co-wrote for AJMC and how the authors looked at ways CMS could prove the Medicare ACO programs.
