Healthcare Delivery Gets its Own Journal

Cheryl Clark, for HealthLeaders Media, January 31, 2013

Others to appear on the masthead are providers on the front lines, including Henry Ford Health System's Executive Vice President and Chief Medical Officer Mark Kelly, MD. Executives from ThedaCare, Academy Health, Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates, and the Philadelphia VA Medical Center.

Two Harvard clinicians, Sachin H. Jain, MD and Amol S. Navathe, MD, serve as the editors-in-chief.

Asked for examples of upcoming articles, Navathe says one should think about "the how" of healthcare. One paper might be a report on the use of an information technology tool focused on discharge planning or medication reconciliation "that produces measureable, improved outcomes, be they readmissions, cost of care or patient reported outcomes."

Navathe adds that another candidate for publication might be a paper describing a health information technology technique that an accountable care organization has successfully employed to identify patients likely to be high utilizers, or high cost patients, or which are likely to have poor outcomes, and point to resources that, were they to be used sooner, might delay or otherwise alter the progression of disease.

I agree with the previous post regarding Registered Nurse representation on the list of contributers. There are many well qualified nurses who could contribute. One suggestion might be to contact the American Organization of Nurse Executives for recommendations.

This appears to be a great new concept for a scholarly and peer reviewed articles concerning direct patient care.Congratulations and best wishes for success. My only concern is the lack of at least one RN on the announced editorial board. When the discussion is concerning patient care at the bedside the nurse actually caring for the patient at the bedside should be at least involved in the discussion. Do not miss out on the advantage of having your team member's valuable input. Thank you.
