The Commonwealth Fund Cites Collaborative Efforts of CHIBE Researchers and General Electric in Searching for Scientific Evidence that Incentives to Improve Health Behavior Can Be Effective

  Unlike prior studies evaluating smoking cessation that paid small financial incentives for smokers to quit, this large-scale study offered larger financial incentives and evaluated long-term smoking cessation rates.  General Electric will be implementing an incentive-based program at its worksites similar to that employed by the study in anticipation that the company will save money in the long term due to increased productivity, lower absenteeism and lower health care costs.
