Haymarket Medical has named Dominic Barone publisher of the Journal of the American Academy of Physician Assistants, a title that Haymarket will begin publishing for AAPA in January.
Barone is formerly of Quadrant HealthCom, and he served as publisher of JAAPA for several years while working for Medical Economics. At Haymarket, he reports to Prescribing Reference Inc. chief executive Mark Bugni.
"I'm glad to be back working with the PA market and JAAPA," said Barone. "It is a rapidly growing profession, which delivers quality healthcare and increasing attention from pharmaceutical marketers."
The AAPA awarded the publishing contract for its journal to Haymarket this summer following a competitive pitch. It is currently published by Advanstar/Medical Economics. JAAPA leads its field in readership and ad exposures, with a circulation of 63,000 clinically practicing PAs and PA students, and generated roughly $1 million in revenue last year, according to industry estimates.
