AJMC® in the Press, August 10, 2018

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

An article in Health Leaders Media on new approaches to practice management among physicians highlighted an article published in The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®). The study, “Personalized Preventive Care Leads to Significant Reductions in Hospital Utilization,” assessed the impact of the MDVIP personalized preventive care model on hospital utilization and found that MDVIP members’ rates were significantly lower than nonmembers’.

The Daily Signal, a product of the Heritage Foundation, included the AJMC® published study, “A Comparison of Relative Resource Use and Quality in Medicare Advantage Health Plans Versus Traditional Medicare,” in its article on Medicare Advantage (MA). The study found that relative resource use is lower and quality of care is higher for patients with diabetes or cardiovascular disease who are enrolled in MA plans compared with traditional Medicare plans.
