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.

Promoting Interfamily Accountability for Reducing Cellphone Use While Driving in Adults and their Teen Children: A Pilot Trial

Principal Investigator: Kit Delgado, MD, MS

The objective of this project is to pilot test an interfamily accountability strategy for teens and their parents to work together to reduce their collective cellphone use while driving. The specific aims are to compare measures of acceptance and feasibility across teen-parent dyads randomized to bidirectional teen-parent vs. teen only monitoring of cellphone use while driving.

Capturing symptom progression and the physical and cognitive activities of patients daily following concussion using Way To Health

Principal Investigators: Douglas Wiebe, MD; Christina Master, MD; Kit Delgado, MD, MS

Our long term goal is to develop an intervention delivered at the point of care at emergency department or clinic discharge on a smartphone to deliver precise, real-time guidance on activity and rest to optimize post-concussion recovery. The objective of this application is to deploy Way To Health (WTH) as way to enable a robust approach to utilizing remote technologies to monitor symptoms, cognitive rest, and physical rest to carryout critical next studies of concussion. We aim to 1) use WTH to develop a protocol to efficiently recruit and enroll pediatric and adult concussion patients from the ED and monitor patients’ symptoms and activities daily over 3 weeks, and 2) test behavioral strategies to ensure engagement with the study protocol by randomizing patients to different incentive conditions.

Pilot trial leveraging smartphone-paired breathalyzers and incentives for reducing binge drinking and drinking and driving

Principal Investigators: Kit Delgado, MD, MS; Henry Kranzler

This project will test the feasibility of implementing a randomized control trial of a behavioral intervention that combines smartphone-paired breathalyzers, financial incentives, and rideshare credits to reduce binge drinking and drinking and driving.
