Financial incentives have been shown to be effective at improving patient health behaviors including medication adherence in a wide variety of contexts. The delivery of such incentives has been enhanced by the recent development of new wireless technologies that facilitate the measurement of daily medication adherence and the provision of incentives in an automated fashion. However, the relative effectiveness of incentives based on process (e.g. statin adherence) versus outcome (e.g. improvements in LDL cholesterol) is unknown.This is a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the relative effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of improving cholesterol levels among participants who are at high risk of CVD and who have elevated LDL cholesterol levels by testing process versus outcomes financial incentives.

This project will develop and pilot a three month randomized control trial (RCT) of a Motivational Interviewing (MI)‐informed SMS intervention tailored to patient level of activation in a population of patients with poorly controlled type II diabetes. The pilot will inform the development of a larger RCT, powered to detect a change in glycemic control.
