The Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) issued a call for papers that highlight health care innovations, especially in care delivery. In a new yearlong series to be published next year, JAMA will feature innovators in the field of health care, specifically those that help achieve the “triple aim” of better health outcomes, improved population health and lower costs.
All papers will be subject to JAMA’s regular submission process, including its strict editorial standards. The journal is especially seeking studies showing outcomes based on tested innovations, rather than theoretical papers. A suggested list of possible topics includes self-care; new roles for caregivers; teamwork; patient safety; physical space and site of care; identification, measurement, and reduction of waste and non–value-added processes; energy use and environmental sustainability; recordkeeping, administrative processes, and care coordination; and learning systems.
