Financial media outlet Benzinga’s article on high-touch care improving health outcomes included a study published in the September issue of AJMC®, “High-Touch Care Leads to Better Outcomes and Lower Costs in a Senior Population.” The study evaluated the impact of a high-touch primary care model among a Medicare Advantage population in comparison with a standard practice—based model.

A blog post from the Association of Health Care Journalists centered around an AJMC® contributor article on maternity care. The article, “A Blueprint for Building Better Maternity Care Payment Systems,” covers a blueprint that lays out ideas for broad health system changes to incentivize higher-value maternity care in the United States.
