Behavioral Economics for Health Care
Patients' medical outcomes (and health outcomes more broadly) depend on more than just medical treatment. In behavioral economics for health care, participants learn the impact that behavioral factors affecting patients, doctors, and their interaction can have on decision-making, costs, treatment path, wellness, and even survival. In this course, participants will explore how psychological biases, reference points, environmental cues, heuristics, and habits play a role in everything from prescriptions, testing, continuity of patient treatment, and more.
This course will prepare you to:
- Understand how behavioral economics can have short and long-term effects on patient outcomes.
- Apply the standard neoclassical economics model to health care.
- Examine how psychological biases can impact patient care.
- Make more systemic decisions that will impact successful patient care.
- Develop a roadmap for incorporating behavioral economics into your practice to become a more effective leader.
