Clinician Behavior

The ways in which physicians, nurses and other clinicians make choices affects the quality and value of patient care. CHIBE’s clinician behavior team works with insurance providers and policymakers to test and implement behavioral economics interventions in a clinical setting. Investigators look at how new and innovative models of physician payment, combined with social and financial incentives, can optimize the value and quality of health care for patients. The work of CHIBE’s clinician behavior team has informed large and small-scale health care policy, including the design of the Affordable Care Act.
