The American Journal of Managed Care® (AJMC®) is a peer-reviewed, indexed journal dedicated to publishing original healthcare outcomes research. Founded in 1995, the journal’s mission is to share research relevant to clinical and policy decision makers as they work to promote the delivery of high-quality care. AJMC® is an acknowledged leader in the growing managed care space, and its influence is seen in the frequency with which authors and their articles are referenced in national media outlets. Managed Care leaders rely on our monthly journal and daily website as a critical resource in improving the quality of care delivered to patients served by managed care.

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.

AJMCtv Peer Exchange is a comprehensive video editorial series that provides a multi-stakeholder perspective on important issues facing managed care professionals in the evolving healthcare landscape. Each edition focuses on a specific disease or condition and features a panel of managed care experts who offer valuable insight and informed opinions on key clinical economic and policy topics.

ACO and Emerging Healthcare Delivery Coalition
As ACOs and other emerging delivery and payment models evolve and move away from traditional fee-for-service system models towards cost-effective and value-based care, the need to understand how these models will evolve is critical to building long-term strategic solutions. The mission of the ACO Coalition is to bring together a diverse group of key stakeholders. The areas represented include: ACO providers and leaders, payers, IDNs, retail and specialty pharmacy, academia, national quality organizations, patient advocacy, employers and pharmaceutical manufacturers. Working in a collaborative manner, the ACO Coalition’s mission is to build value and improve the quality and overall outcomes of patient care. Coalition members share ideas and best practices through live meetings, web-based interactive sessions and conference calls with industry-leading experts.
