The presentation will focus on the growing use of incentives and behavioral economics in healthcare, and how their sophisticated utilization can encourage behavior change.  It will demonstrate how specific but fundamental behavioral economic theories and principles can be applied in a streamlined, online approach.  We will explore how the timing, type, frequency, and framing techniques of incentive design can impact behavior.  Lastly, the presentation will discuss the growing influence that peer accountability and social media can play in encouraging behavior change.
