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.

New Ways to Increase Patient Understanding of Diabetes Control and Disease Severity

Principal Investigators: Gopalan / Volpp

Patients with diabetes mellitus can find it hard to understand their lab test results related to glycemic control, and thus many are not fully aware of how well they are keeping their diabetes under control. The goal of this pilot study is to examine ways to make provider feedback about glycemic control and severity of diabetes based on individual blood sugar levels easier for patients to understand.  Two different formats for the design of a "diabetes report card" will be evaluated.
