Currently, the USA has the highest cost of medical care worldwide, with 40% more spent on healthcare than the second highest country (Germany) and almost 50% more than the average Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries. Yet, despite the high cost of medical care, the US lags behind comparable wealthy and sizable countries in quality metrics (e.g., USA has the lowest life expectancy compared to similar countries). Given the high costs of medical care and low quality of care, the medical field has established several best-practices to increase patient adherence, outcomes, and satisfaction (e.g., teach-back, standardized bedside rounding, post-patient discharge calls). Despite the efficacy of these best practices, adherence to these practices remains low. Behavioral science offers strategies to increase adherence to these best practices. During this 3-hour webinar, Dr. Sleiman will describe the current state of the medical field, describe the metrics that healthcare systems care about, and present behavior-based strategies to increase adherence to best-practices in the healthcare setting.
By the end of this event, participants should be able to:
