Incentives and messaging providers to increase medication adherence

Investigators:

John Beshears, James Choi, David Laibson, and Brigitte Madrian

Summary:

The goal of this pilot is to increase patient adherence to medication using incentives for physicians. We are partnering with a health insurance company to design and implement an incentives program that pays physicians whose patients increase their adherence to oral diabetes medication, hypertension (ACEI or ARB) medication, and/or cholesterol (statins) medication. We will explore the best way to structure the incentives to the physicians.
