SYNOPSIS

Encouraging Appropriate Care Using Behavioral Economics through Electronic Health Records (R21/R33)

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to invite applications proposing to apply behavioral economics principles to build interventions into electronic health records (EHRs) for the purpose of improving physician compliance with recommended treatment guidelines, thereby improving quality of care, health outcomes and reducing health disparities.  This FOA will support pilot research to test the feasibility of implementing and integrating EHR-based behavioral economics interventions (R21 phase) that, if successful, can transition to an R33 phase for implementation of large pragmatic trials.  

The transition from the R21 to the R33 phase of the award will be administratively reviewed and determined by successful completion of the Go/No-Go Criteria that are specified for the R21 phase.
