Feedback Loops and Behavior Change in Healthcare Part II

Building upon our big picture knowledge of behavior change, here are three different views on behavior change in health. 

        How do you properly motivate people?

        How can you keep them engaged long term?

        And finally, what are the baby steps required?


In What Motivates Us, Dan Pink shows us that giving people bigger incentives will not necessarily generate better performance. He explains that people naturally want to be self directed, master a task, and serve a purpose.



In Engagement is the Next Frontier for Connected Health, Dr. Joseph Kvedar teleports us to the future vision of connected health. Feedback loops establish the desire to make a change with our health. But the underlying problem is, how do we keep consumers engaged long term?


Baby Steps:

In the Behavior Model, Bj Fogg creates a road map to behavior change. In order for a behavior to occur, the elements of motivation, ability, and trigger must all occur simultaneously.
