Session 3 - Can Behavioral Economics Drive Cardiovascular Disease Prevention?
SESSION 3
Can Behavioral Economics Drive Cardiovascular Disease Prevention?
NOVEMBER 19, 2020   |   12:00 PM – 1:30 PM ET

Guidelines and therapies can be effective and still not be implemented if barriers to prescribing are not removed. An individual “patient” spends 5,000 hours without a healthcare provider making their own daily choices to improve their health or take their medication. Is it possible to align these stakeholders? Join us to hear from Dr. Kevin Volpp about how health incentives, behavioral economics, and “nudges” can improve cardiovascular health. This session will include a dynamic discussion with diverse healthcare stakeholders.

Session topics:

  • How do we make it easier for clinicians to do the right thing?
  • Making it easier for patients to live healthy lives.
  • Is it the chicken, egg or farm? Clinician, patient or healthcare system?
