Using Behavioral Economics to Improve Physician Pay-for-Performance

The key goal of this project is to test whether and how using behavioral economic principles have been utilized effectively to improve patient well-being and chronic disease management through financial and non-financial incentives. In this program, we are creating a new pay-for-performance physician incentive program at a large clinically integrated network, Advocate Physician Partners (APP) in Chicago, Illinois.
