Bold new Journal Healthcare Transformation launched Dec. 8, 2015

December 09, 2015

New Rochelle, NY, Dec. 9, 2015 -- Healthcare Transformation, a new peer-reviewed open access journalzine published by Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., released its inaugural issue yesterday at the 13th Annual Jefferson University Gala at Jefferson University, Philadelphia. Through authoritative contributions from preeminent thought leaders and decision makers, Healthcare Transformation re-imagines healthcare delivery, education, and technology for the 21st century and beyond.

The premier issue is available to download now on the Healthcare Transformation website and includes a provocative conversation with Aneesh Chopra, an interview with Jack and Suzy Welch, and one of the first-ever comprehensive academic curricula for telehealth training by Dimitrios Papanagnou, MD, MPH and coauthors.

"Signs of a profound change in healthcare are all around us, and changes in healthcare delivery platforms have created radical shifts in many industries, with healthcare and education lagging behind," says Stephen K. Klasko, MD, MBA, Editor-in-Chief of Healthcare Transformation and President and CEO of Thomas Jefferson University and Jefferson Health. "In the near future, the delivery of healthcare may become as decentralized as retail shopping as we move from a Blockbuster-to-Netflix paradigm shift in the way we organize and maintain healthcare records, educate our clinicians, manage patient care, and monitor our own personal health. Healthcare Transformation will be the foremost publication that challenges and highlights the disruptive changes that are developing in the world of healthcare."

"This exclusive, custom-designed publication is the go-to platform for breakthrough ideas and advances in healthcare delivery," says Mary Ann Liebert, President and CEO of Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.

"Dr. Stephen Klasko is a bold leader who will successfully spearhead the movement of reimaging healthcare and healthcare initiatives."
