“I am thrilled to work with AJMC® on the 10th installment of the special health IT issue. Innovation and growth of technology continue to advance and contribute to ongoing transformation of the U.S. health care system,” Walker said. “I look forward to reviewing submissions highlighting evidence about both successes and missed opportunities for health IT to align with new models of care delivery, particularly in the areas of data exchange, analytics and consumer use of digital health tools.”
