Study nudges hospitals towards higher quality

The King’s Fund has published a report exploring how information can help patients to make more informed choices.

The study is based on an online experiment in which people were presented with information using a number of different scorecards to compare the performance of hospitals, and different prompts or “nudges” were used to influence their choices. The report, Choosing a High-quality Hospital: the Role of Nudges, Scorecard Design and Information, is available from the King’s Fund website.
