Behavioral Economic Approaches to Improve Colorectal Cancer Screening

Principal Investigator: Shivan Mehta, MD, MBA, MSHP

This research project will test a population-based approach to improving colorectal cancer screening rates among UPHS employees, which could serve as a model for other payer or employer populations.  The specific aim is to compare conventional email notification, active choice pre-scheduling, and active choice prescheduling with financial incentives against their ability to increase colonoscopy completion rates.

Funder: NIA/NIH
