At the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics, researchers investigate how the science of behavioral economics can improve health outcomes.
What is Behavioral Economics?
Behavioral economics is a field of inquiry that uses principles of economics and psychology to understand how individuals make decisions and uses those insights to try to help people make choices that are consistent with their own long-term interests.
Who Are We?
Drawing on the expertise of faculty from across the University of Pennsylvania, the Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE) conducts behavioral economics research aimed at reducing the disease burden from major U.S. public health problems. Originally founded within the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics, our mission is to inform health policy, improve healthcare delivery and increase healthy behavior.
