Payers and provider groups are in need of novel approaches to structure provider incentives—both financial and non-financial—to better promote the delivery of quality, cost-effective care. In this project, we will study how behavioral economic principles can improve the effectiveness of physician incentives to deliver higher quality and lower cost care. We will test the application of specific behavioral economic principles including loss aversion; physician versus non-physician incentives; and variation in physician-organization relationships in incentive design and implementation.
