A survey put forth by the Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, the Deloitte 2013 Survey of U.S. Physicians, asked more than 600 physicians about the effectiveness of patient incentives. The survey found:
• 70 percent of survey respondents agreed that consumer incentives could be very helpful to achieve better treatment compliance.
• 55 percent of physicians agreed that incentives are sufficiently powerful to motivate consumers to address lifestyle issues and positively change behavior.
When asked what type of incentives would work best with consumers the most popular response among physicians was financial incentives (such as direct payments, lower premiums, and lower copays). Other responses included rewards, perks, and points; and coaching, such as personal coaching, online coaching, and patient navigators. – See more at:
