ACP to publish journal for health systems practice
ACP will begin publishing a peer-reviewed journal next year to meet the clinical information needs of practitioners who work in managed care organizations and other delivery systems.
The journal, which will be billed as "the journal for clinicians and managers in organized health care delivery systems," will focus on the principles of population-based health care and maintaining quality in health systems. The first issue is planned for the spring of 1998.
ACP will produce the journal in collaboration with The HMO Group, a 13-year-old alliance of not-for-profit, group-practice-based HMOs that includes Kaiser Permanente plans and Harvard Pilgrim Health Plan. The HMO Group's current clinical journal,HMO Practice, will cease publication when the new journal is published.
According to Kathleen Case, ACP's Vice President for Publishing, the new publication will not be just "another managed care journal" that touts the virtues of organized delivery systems. Its content will focus on clinical issues, be peer reviewed and its editor will be a physician. A search committee chaired by James P. Nolan, MACP, is expected to recommend an editor by the end of the year.
