Sixteen institutions from 10 U.S. states and 2 countries (the U.S. and Saudi Arabia) came together for the 2nd annual Nudges in Health Care Symposium at the University of Pennsylvania September 16-17. Led by CHIBE’s Mitesh Patel, MD, MBA, MS, director of the Penn Medicine Nudge Unit, the symposium featured speakers with CHIBE affiliations, such as Mohan Balachandran, MA, MS, who spoke about the Nudge Collaborative; and Rinad Beidas, PhD; Justin Bekelman, MD; and Kit Delgado, MD, MS, who spoke on a panel about implementing nudges on the front line.
In addition, the symposium featured speakers from diverse backgrounds from the NIH, Dell Medical School and the College of Fine Arts at The University of Texas at Austin, Sanford Health, Dartmouth Institute, USC Schaeffer Center, Cerner, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and more.
Many of the speakers suggested that we have to keep pushing the boundaries of design in the EHR, and that we can accelerate nudges more broadly through existing teams and champion leaders in our communities.
