NEJM Group Launches New Peer-Reviewed Journal on Health Care Innovations
December 16, 2019
NEJM Catalyst Innovations in Care Delivery, a new subscription-based digital journal from NEJM Group focuses on health care delivery, is now available.
Six times each year, NEJM Catalyst Innovations in Care Delivery will showcase the best ideas for transforming health care delivery from experts around the world, vetted for an audience committed to improving patient outcomes: clinicians, clinical leaders, health care executives, academics, and other key constituents. “This peer-reviewed journal bridges the clinical and executive perspectives, theory and application, and the academic and provider settings,” said Editorial Director Edward Prewitt. “We’ll cover topics such as the payer-provider relationship, alternative payment models, the threat and opportunity of retail health, the future of safety-net hospitals and academic medical centers, analytics for health care delivery, and clinician burnout.” NEJM Catalyst and Clinical Programs at NEJM Group General Manager Matt Cann added, “The journal’s ultimate goal is to improve patient care through innovations that can be put in place in any institution.”
Each issue will feature two long-form articles on the most important ideas in health care delivery. The debut articles discuss a change model that has helped solve complex, intractable health care problems, and how different payment models support or undermine a sustainable health care system. Each issue will additionally contain case studies, expert articles, podcasts, and Insight Reports — a unique NEJM Catalyst product that taps into and analyzes the opinions of the proprietary Insight Council on a range of timely issues. The Insights Council is a group of 12,000 executives, clinical leaders, and clinicians from around the world who serve as the “voice of health care professionals, providing benchmarking and perspective,” as Prewitt puts it. Journal subscribers also have access to NEJM Catalyst web-based events hosted by leading health systems and universities.
Cardiologist and internist Thomas H. Lee, MD, MSc, the chief medical officer of Press Ganey, serves as editor-in-chief, and Harvard Business School Professor Michael E. Porter, one of the leading thinkers on management and competitiveness, co-chairs the editorial board with Dr. Lee.
NEJM Catalyst Innovations in Care Delivery builds on the success of NEJM Catalyst over the previous four years. The former digital platform featured non–peer-reviewed content, while “the new journal raises the bar for innovations that have the most potential to transform health care,” Cann says. “The peer-reviewed articles will have a higher level of rigor in order to contribute to the knowledge base on health care delivery.” The new journal will be indexed immediately in Google Scholar.
