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.

A Pilot Intervention of an MI-Informed SMS Intervention For Poorly Controlled Type II Diabetes

Principal Investigators: Judith Long, MD; Ilona Lorincz, MD

This project will develop and pilot a three month randomized control trial (RCT) of a Motivational Interviewing (MI)‐informed SMS intervention tailored to patient level of activation in a population of patients with poorly controlled type II diabetes. The pilot will inform the development of a larger RCT, powered to detect a change in glycemic control.

Improving Diabetes Glucose Control Through Peer Counseling and Incentives

Principal Investigator:  Long

Prior research has established that patients achieving good glucose control can reduce their likelihood of diabetes mellitus micro-vascular complications, including blindness, renal failure, neuropathy and amputations. The growing epidemic of diabetes mellitus disproportionately affects low income and racial minority populations. This pilot study tests whether in a cohort of low-income U.S. veterans with poor diabetes mellitus control peer counseling or financial incentives can help improve glucose control compared with usual care.

A Randomized Trial of Incentives and Peer Mentors to Improve Diabetic Outcomes

Principal Investigator:  Long

Co-investigators:  Ferguson, Glick, Loewenstein, Small, Volpp, Weiner

One-on-one peer mentoring and financial incentives are being compared as interventions which might address some of the barriers to effective disease management common among patients with diabetes.  If effective, these interventions could provide important models for improving glucose control in general and, in particular, for addressing racial disparities in diabetes outcomes.
