TMT Welcomes John Halamka, MD, to Board


Telehealth and Medicine Today (TMT) is proud to welcome Dr. John D. Halamka MD, CIO of the Beth Israel Deaconess System and International Healthcare Innovation Professor at Harvard Medical School, as editor-in-chief. Dr. Halamka joins Dr. Jane Barratt, Secretary General, IFA, and Douglas Shinsato, Regent, University of Hawaii Board of Regents, and co-founder, Anthill Ventures.
TMT continues to introduce many new facets to the journal’s profile since its launch as market disruptor in 2016.
“Telemedicine and telecare will see exponential growth in the next year as healthcare systems adopt value based purchasing contracts and feel the urgency to improve quality while reducing costs. There is no better time to communicate the successes and failures of early adopters. TMT is the perfect place to share experiences with the community" stated Dr. Halamka. His biography may be viewed here.

As a new journal launching on an open source peer review platform, TMT encourages scholarly manuscript submissions that present leading edge innovations and outcomes in a field perceived as tired by some. Although legislation lags, digital health and new technologies continue to fuel change in the healthcare sector.

Telehealth and Medicine Today publishes articles on a continuous basis. As articles are accepted, they are published to ensure timely and accurate reflections of developments to assist building rapid consensus and adoption by the community.

Telehealth and Medicine Today has partnered with Code Ocean. Authors can now transparently share code associated with their research, with readers.

Code Ocean, is a cloud based computational reproducibility platform, where researchers, engineers, developers, and scientists can upload code and data in any open source programming language and link working code in a computational environment within an article. The journal encourages authors and readers to share articles to broaden the sector's knowledge base. The initiative will also assist in reducing negative results, and ideally, accelerate time to market.

The Code Ocean platform can also be used to include an executable copy of an author's code for the peer review process.

Partners in Digital Health and Code Ocean will work towards the integration of Code Ocean into the journal submission and peer review workflow, where code and data is used. Authors will upload their code and data, within a cloud based computational environment, to create an executable “compute capsule” that can reproduce their results. A compute capsule will get a DOI and be embedded within the article upon the manuscript’s publication, enabling readers to view and verify the article’s results. Authors can upload and submit code and data associated with their article. Users can execute the code, view results, and modify the code to see how results change.

Partners in Digital Health joins distinguished Code Ocean publishing partners De Gruyter, Cambridge University Press, Taylor & Francis, and BMJ Publishing Group.


ARTiFACTS Partnership:

TMT is committed to advancing the use of blockchain in scholarly publishing. Under this partnership, ARTiFACTS and TMT will  work together to integrate blockchain technology into the scholarly publishing workflow and collaborate on research to assess the effectiveness of the technology as a tool to improve speed, collaboration, access, transparency, and attribution in scholarly research.

TMT will make its content available on the ARTiFACTS platform and will also provide access for its author/researcher community to start using the platform to establish proof of existence for research outputs, share research artifacts, and provide and receive immutable attribution in real-time during their research. Authors will benefit from the ability to easily and securely share in-process work to speed collaboration and enhance their reputation as research is conducted.
