Cognitive Bias

CHIBE researchers looked at how errors in human cognition that prioritize the readily imaginable over the statistical, the present over the future, and the direct over the indirect affected decisions during the pandemic.

Our researchers found that text-based reminders that made vaccination salient and easy were effective in boosting COVID-19 vaccination rates within a health care system.
