Designing Nudges for Success in Health Care.

Harrison JD, Patel MS. Designing Nudges for Success in Health Care. AMA journal of ethics. 2020 Sep 1; 22(9):E796-801.




Abstract:

Nudges are subtle changes to the design of the environment or the framing of information that can influence our behaviors. There is significant potential to use nudges in health care to improve patient outcomes and transform health care delivery. However, these interventions must be tested and implemented using a systematic approach. In this article, we describe several ways to design nudges for success by focusing on optimizing and fitting them into the clinical workflow, engaging the right stakeholders, and rapid experimentation.
