Our research can help you.
Our researchers have demonstrated how behavioral science can be used to improve health outcomes. Changes in the electronic health record at Penn Medicine helped increase vaccinations, decrease patients’ length of stay in the hospital, and increase referral rates for cardiac rehabilitation, for example.
And we have the proof.
In one case, a simple change to the electronic health record default choice from brand-name prescriptions to generics increased generic prescriptions overnight from about 75% to 98%, saving millions of dollars annually for Penn Medicine.
