Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In 2023, we will celebrate the 10th anniversary volume of the journal Healthcare (ISSN 2227-9032). To commemorate this significant milestone, we are launching a Special Issue entitled "The 10th Anniversary of Healthcare—Medication Management." It is our pleasure to invite you to submit an original research paper or a comprehensive review article for peer review and possible publication in this Special Issue of Healthcare

Healthcare is an international, scientific, peer-reviewed, open access journal on health care systems, industry, technology, policy, and regulation, and is published online by MDPI, Basel, Switzerland. Healthcare is indexed within Scopus, SCIE and SSCI (Web of Science), PubMed, PMC, and other databases. The Impact Factor for this journal is 3.160, and it ranks 50/109 (Q2) in “Health Care Sciences & Services” and 35/88 (Q2) in “Health Policy & Services” in Web of Science. The inaugural issue was released in 2013, and in 2021, we published the 1000th paper in this journal. Healthcare is evidently a rapidly developing journal.

This Special Issue focuses on the complex and interrelated topics related to the pharmaceutical sector and medication management, including drug regulation, selection, utilization, health outcomes, reimbursement, and drug access and affordability. The articles will explore the factors that shape drug approval, selection and utilization, as well as the impact of these factors on patient outcomes. The goal of this Special Issue is to provide a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the pharmaceutical sector, with the aim of informing policymakers, researchers, practitioners, and patients on how to improve access to and utilization of safe, effective, and affordable medicines.
