Date:11/12/2012

New York, November 12, 2012 Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of Health Care: The Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation.

Health Care provides a vehicle for communicating important advances in the study of cutting edge research on innovation in health care delivery, including improvements in systems, processes, management, payment, and applied information technology. The United States health care system is undergoing unprecedented reform; Health Care builds on examples to demonstrate how change happens in real-world settings, disseminating important ideas that inform and improve clinical practice by publishing innovative, high quality research, reviews and opinions.

The leadership of the journal comes under three Senior co-Editors-in-Chief, all renowned experts on health care transformation: Arnold Milstein, Professor of Medicine at Stanford and Medical Director of the Pacific Business Group on Health; Richard Shannon, the Frank Wister Professor of Medicine and Chair of the Department of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania; and Ashish Jha, C. Boden Gray Associate Professor of Medicine at the Harvard School of Public Health.

"This is a critical time for the U.S. healthcare system," said Dr. Jha. "The need for thoughtful, high quality empirical work to guide us has never been greater. Health Care will combine data-driven evaluations of current efforts with insightful commentary from the most innovative thinkers in the U.S. We aim to make it an important force for fresh ideas on how to improve the healthcare delivery system."

Founders of the journal and co-Editors-in-Chief are Amol Navathe, MD, PhD, a physician at the Brigham and Women's Hospital who holds appointments at Harvard Medical School and The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, and Sachin H. Jain, MD, MBA, a physician at the Boston Veteran's Administration Medical Center, Lecturer in Health Care Policy at Harvard Medical School, and Chief Medical Information and Innovation Officer at Merck.

Christine Cassel, the President of the American Board of Internal Medicine and a member of the journal's editorial board stated, "Health care delivery systems are advancing at an incredible pace. Physicians and other members of the health care team need help in translating these changes in health care delivery into broader practice. This new launch will provide the community with a high quality journal in which to publish these advances and drive change."

"Elsevier is pleased to work with the distinguished leadership of this journal to publish scholarly communication at the nexus of healthcare and technology," said Ann Gabriel, Publishing Director at Elsevier. "The launch of this journal is very timely given the rapidly evolving landscape of healthcare delivery in the U.S."
