Newswise — February 1, 2017 – Wolters Kluwer, a leading global provider of information and point of care solutions for the healthcare industry, is pleased to be named publisher of two new journals―the Journal of Healthcare Management (JHM) and Frontiers of Health Services Management―by the American College of Healthcare Executives (ACHE), the preeminent professional society for healthcare leaders and executives.
The new partnership begins with the January/February 2017 issue of JHM, and the Spring 2017 issue of Frontiers. ACHE’s publishing division, Health Administration Press, will continue to develop and manage the editorial content of the journals.
Through this new partnership, ACHE’s more than 40,000 members now will have online access to both JHM and Frontiers, in addition to one printed journal of their choice. The newly upgraded journal websites will feature more than 30 years of archives for each publication, searching capabilities, eAlerts, and more – all with streamlined member access.
“Our partnership with Wolters Kluwer is testament to ACHE’s commitment to member education and professional development,” noted ACHE President and CEO Deborah J. Bowen, FACHE, CAE. “Now more than ever, it is critically important for healthcare leaders to stay abreast of the latest developments in the field. This collaboration will enable us to leverage our strengths and tap new capabilities to ensure our publications are accessible, relevant and useful to a wide range of audiences.”
“We’re delighted to be named publisher of the American College of Healthcare Executives member journals and are excited to deepen the reach and awareness of their brands and globally,” said Jayne Marks, Vice President, Global Publishing, Wolters Kluwer, Health Learning, Research and Practice.
Both highly regarded journals will continue to publish the latest research and discussions of key topics and evolving trends in today’s healthcare landscape. Journal of Healthcare Management (www.JHMjournalonline.com), a widely cited, peer-reviewed publication, remains the primary research journal of ACHE and disseminates the most recent findings and practice applications, six times per year.
