Relaunching the Policy and Management section.

Follow the money, the saying goes, and you will understand why things are the way they are. Serving as coeditors for Families, Systems, and Health’s Policy and Management section, we seek to do just that. As new models of payment offer hope for improved delivery of integrated care for families, this newly relaunched section of the journal will highlight both the opportunities and the deeply rooted challenges in the evolving US payment system. While many of the challenges associated with integrated care payment are driven by public policy, others are driven by management and leadership decisions. We wish to explore both this year. Drawing on our combined experience in health care policy and management—nearly 70 years and counting—our aim is to offer readers timely, thoughtful, and promising insights into payment policy reforms and cost reduction opportunities that impact the spread and sustainability of integrated care. We invite your opinions, case studies, and research as we follow the money, and explore how to best pay for integrated care. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2018 APA, all rights reserved)
