Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics Research

CHIBE researchers apply concepts from the field of behavioral economics to design, implement, and evaluate interventions that improve health and build knowledge about efficacy, cost and effectiveness. 

Basic Science Core Request for Applications

The Basic Science Core aims to support laboratory or low-cost field studies that will shed light on mechanisms that can generate behavior change.  In contrast to previous large-scale field studies, which have often combined multiple mechanisms into one intervention in order to maximize impact on behavior, basic science projects supported by the Core focus on disentangling and precisely identifying the impacts of individual mechanisms.  CHIBE researchers interested in applying for project support can click here for more information.

Behavioral Economics in Provider Incentive Design

Principal Investigator: Amol Navathe, MD, PhD

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.

Physician Judgment and Machine Predictions: Understanding and Improving Medical Decisions Using Machine Learning

Principal Investigator: Amol Navathe, MD, PhD

The main objective of this project is to improve upon human judgment in medicine. We will develop a program of research designed to facilitate the adoption of a sophisticated and powerful set of algorithms in clinical settings. Our initial studies will lay the conceptual and technical groundwork for testing and implementing interventions to improve decision making, and measuring the potential benefits including reducing low-value care and health disparities.

HMSA Member Consumer Engagement

Principal Investigator: Amol Navathe, MD, PhD

The first objective of the study is to identify key social and behavioral determinants of health of individuals and communities in Hawaii and development an approach to design and test interventions to address gaps and improve patient engagement and health metrics. The second objective is to help HMSA align incentives of members’ health insurance benefit design and the provider payment system that is part of HMSA’s payment transformation.
