We are delighted to welcome Kevin Volpp, MD, PhD as our first Keynote Speaker for this Breakthrough Opportunities event on Designing Provider Incentives with the Commonwealth Fund.
Dr. Volpp is the founding Director of the Leonard Davis Institute Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics, a Professor of Medicine and Vice Chairman for Health Policy of the Department of Medical Ethics and Policy at the Perelman School of Medicine, a Professor of Health Care Management at the Wharton School, and one of two Directors of the University of Pennsylvania CDC Prevention Research Center.
In our first video, Dr. Volpp discusses key principles in behavioral economics and how they can be used to design incentive programs that lead to better health outcomes.
Kevin and his team recently published their findings in the Annals of Internal Medicine in their paper, “Using Behavioral Economics to Design Physician Incentives That Deliver High-Value Care.”
