American Health & Drug Benefits®The Peer-Reviewed Journal for Real-World Evidence in Benefit Design™

American Health & Drug Benefits (AHDB) is an independent, peer-reviewed journal founded in 2008 on the concept that health and drug benefits have undergone a transformation: the econometric value of a therapy is currently of equal importance to clinical outcomes as it is to serving as the basis for coverage decisions and benefit designs. Because benefit designs are greatly affected by clinical, business, and policy conditions, the journal offers a forum for stakeholder integration and collaboration toward the promotion of value-based healthcare. AHDB further provides benefit design makers the integrated information they need to devise benefit designs and make coverage decisions that stand up to today’s special healthcare delivery and business needs.

American Health & Drug Benefits is included in the following indexing and database services: PubMed Central, Google Scholar, EMBASE/Elsevier Bibliographic Database, SCOPUS/Elsevier Bibliographic Database, Cumulative Index to Nursing and Allied Health Literature (CINAHL), EBSCO research databases, Standard Periodical Directory. American Health & Drug Benefits is a Member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), and the journal follows the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) Recommendations for the Conduct, Reporting, Editing and Publication of Scholarly Work in Medical Journals.
