Importance Incentivizing research participation is controversial and variably regulated because of uncertainty regarding whether financial incentives serve as undue inducements by diminishing peoples' sensitivity to research risks or unjust inducements by preferentially increasing enrollment among underserved individuals. Objective To determine whether incentives improve enrollment in real randomized clinical trials (RCTs) or serve as undue or unjust inducements. Design, Setting, and Participant...

Purpose of review null Behavioral economics represents a promising set of principles to inform the design of health-promoting interventions. Techniques from the field have the potential to increase quality of cardiovascular care given suboptimal rates of guideline-directed care delivery and patient adherence to optimal health behaviors across the spectrum of cardiovascular care delivery. null Recent findings null Cardiovascular health-promoting interventions have demonstrated success in using a ...

Importance null Financial incentives may improve health behaviors. It is unknown whether incentives are more effective if they target a key process (eg, medication adherence), an outcome (eg, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol [LDL-C] levels), or both. null Objective null To determine whether financial incentives awarded daily for process (adherence to statins), awarded quarterly for outcomes (personalized LDL-C level targets), or awarded for process plus outcomes induce reductions in LDL-C lev...

Abstract Background Cardiac interventions account for a significant share of overall healthcare spending and have been the focus of several large-scale interventions to develop effective bundled payments. To date, however, none have proven successful in commercially insured populations. In 2018, we worked with Hawaii Medical Service Association (HMSA), the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Hawaii, to design a novel commercial bundled payment for percutaneous coronary interventions, the Percutaneous Coro...

Importance null Modest weight loss can lead to meaningful risk reduction in adults with obesity. Although both behavioral economic incentives and environmental change strategies have shown promise for initial weight loss, to date they have not been combined, or compared, in a randomized clinical trial. null Objective null To test the relative effectiveness of financial incentives and environmental strategies, alone and in combination, on initial weight loss and maintenance of weight loss in adul...

Importance Health promotion efforts commonly communicate goals for healthy behavior, but the best way to design goal setting among high-risk patients has not been well examined. Objective To test the effectiveness of different ways to set and implement goals within a behaviorally designed gamification intervention to increase physical activity. Design, Setting, and Participants Evaluation of the Novel Use of Gamification With Alternative Goal-setting Experiences was conducted from January 15, 20...
