CRANBURY, N.J., May 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®) today announced its call for papers for the 11th Annual Health Information Technology (IT) issue, which will feature scholarly articles and perspectives from policy makers, payers, providers, pharmaceutical companies, health IT vendors and health services researchers.
Dori Cross, Ph.D.,an assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health, will serve as the guest editor of the special issue, which will be published in January 2022.
"For the last 11 years, we have been consistently impressed by the quality of manuscripts we have received for the annual health IT issue," said Mike Hennessy Jr., president and CEO of MJH Life Sciences™, the parent company of AJMC®. "Considering the explosion in the use of telehealth and other IT tools over this past year, we are very grateful to have Dr. Cross edit our special issue and look forward to her working alongside our editorial team to review these incoming submissions."
Topics of interest for original research papers and informed commentary on health IT include, but are not limited to, the following:
Patterns of telemedicine use and impact
Electronic health record usability and clinician burden
Use of patient-facing portals, third-party applications and application programming interfaces (APIs)
Health IT and equity
Adoption of advanced health IT capabilities
Each submitted research paper will undergo peer review before being accepted. The final decision regarding a paper's acceptance will be made by Cross. Due to space constraints, AJMC® requests that Original Research articles be limited to 3,000 words and a total of five figures and/or tables; limits for other article types can be found on the AJMC® website.
Papers will have the best chance of inclusion if submitted before July 31, 2021. High-quality papers not selected for this issue will be considered for one of the regular monthly issues of AJMC®.
"This annual special issue always profiles exciting research advancements in the use of health IT to support care delivery and population health," Cross said.
