AJMC publishes health IT issue focused on digital care equity

The American Journal of Managed Care centered its 11th Annual Health Information Technology Special Issue on how digital technology can be used to advance health equity.

According to a Jan. 25 press release, the issue contains an array of articles that discuss how health IT has been used to address the challenges surrounding health equity and social determinants of health.

"Digital advancement is not the end goal but instead a strategic approach to organizational learning, care process optimization and data-driven outcomes improvement," said Dori Cross, PhD, an assistant professor in the Department of Health Policy and Management at the University of Minnesota School of Public Health and guest editor of the issue. "The areas of research focus in this special issue, and specific insights offered by authors' analyses, help us chart a path forward to integrating and realizing value from our continued commitment to digitally enabled health care."

The issue aims to explore how the healthcare industry can use technology to advance its goals in health equity.
