David Asch

Effective patient engagement plays a central role in improving healthcare quality and outcomes by helping facilitate the active involvement of individuals in the management of their health care. However, personal behaviors and the choices people make for themselves have a profound influence on the state of their health. While most people know what they need to do to improve their health, more often than not they fall short when it comes to taking effective action. Behavioral economics not only seeks to understand the powerful forces that impede the achievement of health care goals, but tries to turn those forces to an advantage. Dr. David Asch will focus on innovative ways of applying insights from behavioral economics toward the goal of improving individual health behaviors and positively affecting provider performance.
