Elsevier announces the publication of Health Care: The Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation
Date:6/27/2013

New York, June 27, 2013 Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the publication of the first issue of Health Care: The Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation.

Health Care communicates cutting edge research on innovation in health care delivery, focusing specifically on payment reform, patient-centered innovation, quality and process improvement, and applied health information technology. As the United States health care system undergoes unprecedented change, Health Care aims to bridge the gap between the academic community and decision-makers, focusing on real-world implementation and disseminating important ideas that inform and improve clinical practice.

Reflecting on the context for the new journal Jim Yong Kim, MD, PhD, President of the World Bank Group, writes in an opening editorial, "Failure to incorporate multidisciplinary perspectives into health care delivery has hampered progress towards the goals that we all want to reach: better health outcomes and reduced health care costsHealth Care brings the early seeds of leadership and transformation that we so urgently need." A companion editorial written by Don Berwick, MD, MPP, President Emeritus of the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and former Administrator of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) underscores that, "To make truly meaningful change, we need to bring together the best minds across academia, medicine, government, the community, and moreHealth Care will help do just that."

The inaugural issue of the journal, edited by Melinda Buntin, PhD, Deputy Assistant Director for Health at Congressional Budget Office, and Rachel Werner, MD, Associate Professor of Medicine at Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, focuses on one of the most critical levers in health care improvement and innovation: payment reform. It features articles by Michael Chernew and colleagues, examining the impact of global payment under Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts's Alternative Quality Contract program; Kevin Volpp and colleagues describe a novel evaluative approach to accelerate the rate of learning from provider reform initiatives; and an in-depth interview with Mark B. McClellan, former Administrator of CMS, which explores his views on accountable care organizations and the priorities for CMS in leading payment reform. These articles are complemented by several other innovative, high quality, original research articles, reviews, case studies and perspectives pieces.

"Elsevier is proud to announce the first issue of HealthCare, a journal at the forefront of the rapidly developing landscape of technology and healthcare delivery in the U.S.," said Ann Gabriel, Publishing Director at Elsevier.
