Journal’s quarter-century of innovation, growth and cutting-edge research leads to special milestone
CRANBURY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®), the leading multimedia peer-reviewed journal dedicated to issues in managed care, marks a new year and decade celebrating 25 years of success as a trusted source of healthcare research and commentary in the managed markets industry.
“Since 1995, AJMC® has worked hard to develop and maintain the trust and integrity in everything we do, from providing a forum for peer-reviewed literature on health care outcomes research to shining a light on health policy by sharing digital research relevant with our industry decision-makers,” said Mike Hennessy Jr., the president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, the parent company of AJMC®. “Now more than ever, our readers rely on us to help them make sense of this ever-changing landscape. We look forward to remaining a prominent source for cutting-edge research over the next 25 years and beyond.”
Over the past 25 years, the field of managed care has brought change not only in the health policy landscape but also in technological capabilities, the patient’s role in health care, therapeutic options and hundreds of other domains. Businesses have emerged that help hospitals and physicians find ways to deliver outcomes-based care and digital entrepreneurs are reshaping how and where care is delivered. Throughout this time, AJMC® began as a print journal but has grown into the foundation of the Managed Markets Network, which includes the “Peer Exchange” and “Insights” video series, online news and post-conference coverage, live events and much more.
To mark the 25th anniversary, the journal kicked off the celebration with the “Paper of the Week” social media campaign, which looks back at some of the most influential research articles and commentary that have appeared in The American Journal of Managed Care® over the past 25 years. Also, the journal will be publishing a series of cutting-edge interviews with a healthcare thought leader in each AJMC® issue of 2020. Last month, the journal’s ninth annual Health Information Technology special issue featured an interview with Eric Topol, M.D., of Scripps Research, the author of three books about how digital health and artificial intelligence are changing the future of health care. Over the next few months, the journal will also address the future of the Affordable Care Act, which remains in limbo after a recent federal appeals court ruling that deemed its individual mandate unconstitutional.
