About the Journal

The Journal of Health Care Finance, a respected quarterly print journal for over 30 years, is now modernizing its operations and going fully online under the leadership of its long time Editor, James Unland. This will enable our Journal to (a) publish articles relating to major health care financial and policy developments in a more timely manner, (b) publish articles without regard to article length restrictions and (c) publish many more articles than was the case with the print edition.

In addition to these enhanced capabilities, we have been mindful of the increasing number of excellent articles in recent years that have covered the health care systems of nations outside the United States. Hence, we are starting an International Section of our Journal. Several experts qualified in this area have formed a special International Section Editorial Advisory Board under the leadership of Professor Mustafa Younis, and we are looking forward to offering a diverse array of informative and groundbreaking international articles as we move toward truly global health care finance coverage.
