For over 70 years, Medical Care Research and Review (formerly Medical Care Review) has been a pioneering force in the area of health services research. During that time, the journal evolved from publishing abstracts to a well-respected journal carrying critical reviews of literature on organizational structure, economics, and the financing of health and medical care systems. Today, the journal's focus has expanded to reflect the growth of the field and the increasing importance of health services research -- while still maintaining the high standards that have kept Medical Care Research and Review at the forefront of health care research for over half a century.

An Even More Valuable Resource For Researchers, Policy Makers, And Health Care Administrators

Under its former title, the journal was a respected source of scholarly review articles that analyzed, critiqued and synthesized current literature and research in health care services. The journal's extended scope now includes original empirical and theoretical research and analysis of data trends, as well as the in-depth review articles for which the journal is known. Each issue now includes rigorous empirical research studies and trend analysis that provide policy makers and health practitioners with information vital to improving the health care system.

Covering Current Issues in Health Care

Medical Care Research and Review covers timely aspects of health care such as:

  • Evaluation of the impact of changes in health policy and practice
  • Health insurance markets and the impact of health reform
  • Health Information Technology adoption and application in health delivery
  • Impact of competition and regulation on health care markets and providers
  • Health care disparities in access, treatment, and outcomes
  • Patient safety and quality of care
  • Health care workforce issues and primary care capacity
  • Patient engagement in health care decision-making
  • Economics and financial issues in health care delivery
  • Organizational structure and behavior of health organizations
  • Comparative effectiveness analysis

The journal occasionally complements its broad coverage with supplements on particular topics. For example, an October 2014 supplement focused on informing the next generation of public reporting for consumers.

"Medical Care Research and Review aims to publish the best health services research in the field, especially papers that will inform research and decision-making on ways to improve health care services, including access to services as well as their cost, quality, access, and organization. - Thomas D'Aunno, Ph.D., Editor-in-Chief, Medical Care Research and Review
