Meet Dr Joel Segel, AJAC’s Latest Editorial Board Member

The American Journal of Accountable Care® (AJAC) just lately added Joel Segel, PhD, affiliate professor of well being coverage and administration at Penn State College, to its editorial board. Right here, Segel talks about what he is trying ahead to as a part of the board and the function AJAC performs in addressing well being fairness in the course of the transition to the Enhancing Oncology Mannequin (EOM).


What are you most excited for in becoming a member of the AJAC editorial board?

I am definitely enthusiastic about becoming a member of AJAC. I believe what’s thrilling is it is at that intersection of analysis, coverage, and follow. And I believe what’s actually attention-grabbing on the analysis facet is getting good concepts about what may work, after which additionally on the opposite finish, attempting to guage present concepts and seeing what really works. What will get thrilling on the analysis facet is you assist to tell follow, you assist to tell coverage, as a result of I believe there’s at all times a whole lot of concepts, and a few of them work, and a few of them do not work as nicely, and typically they work in a single place however not as nicely in one other. So I believe that is the place it may be essential to have an outlet to publish and disseminate any such work.

What distinctive perspective do you hope to carry to the AJAC editorial board?

I hope I carry a pair. One could be, I definitely have had a bunch of analysis expertise in plenty of completely different settings by way of fascinated with evaluating insurance policies, evaluating applications, completely different work in that sort of space. I carry some experience within the oncology space, and likewise within the behavioral well being space, and so I believe these are form of prime areas the place it is essential to find out about what works and what does not. And I suppose the final one could be having finished work in plenty of completely different settings, whether or not it is with completely different payers or with completely different suppliers. For example, I have been doing a little work by way of most cancers screening and a few most cancers therapy within the Army Well being System. The concept there’s at all times, “How can we study from from one sector and translate it into a few of the different ones?”

How can well being care suppliers promote well being fairness within the shift to EOM, and what function does AJAC play in these efforts?

I believe it is definitely a partnership, and the concept is, “How can we study from what works and even what does not essentially work?” I believe it is at all times essential…. We attempt to implement an concept that looks like it would work, and even when it does not work completely, you may study so much about (how) possibly it labored for this group and never this different group or that we discovered what to not do. I believe what AJAC can do—and I believe it is the accountable a part of the accountable care half—is that it is this concept of, how do you carry proof to what organizations are doing? How can we determine what works and the way can we disseminate that? And the way can we really ensure we’re rigorously evaluating completely different concepts, completely different applications, completely different insurance policies?
