The great debate about the effectiveness of incentives in achieving health improvement is an ongoing one: intrinsic vs. extrinsic, monetary vs. non-monetary, outcomes vs. participation-based requirements. Do any of these approaches work? The answer is "Yes" and "No." Incentives can work in changing behavior long term, if done correctly, which is the hard part. This session will discuss approaches that have seen success and failure, and ultimately how to weave together the right blend of science, technology, and incentives to achieve the outcomes your organization is investing in.
