A Leader in Managed Markets
Founded in 1995, The American Journal of Managed Care® is a peer-reviewed, indexed journal dedicated to publishing original healthcare outcomes research. The journal’s mission is to publish research that is relevant to clinical and policy decision makers as they work to promote the efficient delivery of high-quality care. It is an acknowledged leader in the growing managed care space, and the publication’s influence is seen in the frequency with which authors and their articles are referenced in national media outlets.
Launched in 2009, The American Journal of Pharmacy Benefits® publishes peer-reviewed research that examines the impact of formulary management strategies on the utilization, cost, and quality of pharmacy services. The journal’s mission is to provide pharmacy and formulary decision makers with clinical strategies to improve efficiency and health outcomes in managing pharmaceutical care.
Both The American Journal of Managed Care® and The American Journal of Pharmacy Benefits® circulate to individuals with important decision-making responsibilities that affect the inclusion and tier placement of drugs on formularies, and both publications address the demand for rigorous, evidence-based research that managed care decision makers rely on to make value-based decisions for the populations they serve. The journals’ audiences include medical directors, pharmacy and therapeutics committee members, pharmacy directors, corporate benefits managers, and other healthcare professionals across the following 6 market segments: 1) HMO/PPO/IHOs; 2) hospitals; 3) long-term care; 4) PBMs; 5) VA/government; and 6) employers. Together, these 2 journals offer powerful insights for decision makers on matters of medical insurance and pharmacy benefit management.
