AJMC® in the Press, July 27, 2018

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

The Wednesday Accountable Care SmartBrief from America’s Health Insurance Plans (AHIP) included an article from The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®). The article, “Azar Appoints Senior Advisor for Value-Based Care in the United States,” reported on the news that Adam Boehler, director of the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Innovation, is taking on an additional role as the senior advisor for value-based transformation and innovation.

An AHIP blog post included a study published in the February 2017 issue of AJMC®, “Value-Based Contracting Innovated Medicare Advantage Healthcare Delivery and Improved Survival.” The study found that elderly Medicare Advantage members with multiple chronic conditions attained a survival benefit from more cost-effective care when a private plan developed gainshare and monetary risk-bearing arrangements with its contracted providers.
