A pair of Boston physicians with experience working on national health policy are launching a new journal focused on changes in the health care system, including new payment methods. Drs. Sachin H. Jain and Amol Navathe expect the first issue of Health Care: The Journal of Delivery Science and Innovation to be published next summer.
Jain and Navathe began planning the journal, which will be published by Elsevier, while in D.C. together last year. Jain, who now sees patients at VA Boston and holds posts at Harvard Medical School and Merck & Co., was an advisor to Dr. Donald Berwick, then administrator for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services. Navathe was a medical officer in the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Planning and Evaluation. He is a physician at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and has appointments at Harvard Medical School and The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania.
