Paul Wallace Named Executive Editor of eGEMs
AcademyHealth announced Paul Wallace, M.D., as the new executive editor of its peer-reviewed open access journal eGEMs. Wallace is the former Chief Medical Officer at OptumLabs, and current AcademyHealth senior scholar in residence. A national leader in population health research and the use of evidence to improve health care, Wallace was also an early advocate for the use of electronic health data for delivery system transformation.
“eGEMs fills a critical role in the field by providing open access to seminal manuscripts focused on the challenges of implementing new methods, data, and governance needed to build learning health systems,” said Wallace. “I’m honored to be part of this vibrant community of multi-disciplinary experts and authors working to shape the next generation of learning health systems and provided a publishing platform for practical lessons learned not often published in other journals.”
