Company adds up patients’ points to reward for prescription adherence

Healthcare IT News, July 15, 2008

Skinner, including the use of intermittent reinforcement schedules, a linked behavior/reward sequence, and education to condition patients and allow them the opportunity to earn points as determined by a suite of complex behavioral algorithms.
