Disease Management Journal Changes Name and Expands Focus to Population Health Management

NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y., Aug. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Reflecting the expanding scope of chronic disease care and the impact of economic, social, cultural, and environmental factors on health care systems and practices, DMAA: The Care Continuum Alliance and publisher Mary Ann Liebert Inc. have renamed the peer-reviewed journal of DMAA Population Health Management.

The new name of the journal (formerly Disease Management) begins with the August 2008 issue (Volume 11, Number 4). With the new name comes a broadened approach to exploring the changes in strategy, implementation and policy needed to improve overall health care and quality of life. To mark the name change, DMAA and Mary Ann Liebert are making the entire August issue available at no charge online at

Although disease management will continue to be a critical component of population health improvement, it represents only one tool required for improving health care quality, access, and outcomes at the population level. Other elements include resource management, clinical guidelines, compliance strategies, information technology, and health economics. In addition to these topics, original research papers published in Population Health Management will focus on outcomes assessment, clinical process reengineering, provider incentives, quality, and return on investment.

"Population health focuses on the distribution of health outcomes within a population as well as the determinants that affect this distribution (e.g., ethnicity, medical care, environment, and public health policy)," says Journal Editor-in-Chief David B. Nash, MD, MBA, Professor and Chairman, Department of Health Policy, Jefferson Medical College (Philadelphia, PA). "The development of improved interventions for chronic conditions hinges on understanding their distribution within the population and the factors that influence that distribution."

"The new title of our official journal reflects the evolution of chronic disease care to strategies across the entire care continuum --- from prevention and wellness to the most complex interventions," says DMAA President and CEO Tracey Moorhead. "Our journal has evolved, too, keeping pace with these changes as the leading peer-reviewed publication for population health."

Population Health Management is an authoritative, peer-reviewed journal published bimonthly in print and online that reflects the expanding scope of health care management and quality. The Journal delivers a comprehensive, integrated approach to the field of population health and provides information designed to improve the systems and policies that affect health care quality, access, and outcomes, thereby improving the health of an entire population. Comprising peer-reviewed original research papers, clinical research and case studies, the content includes a broad range of chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, chronic pain, diabetes, depression, and obesity, as well as focusing on various aspects of prevention and wellness.
