Manager Research Project B
Job Description Summary
The Penn Medicine Nudge Unit is currently recruiting a talented design and innovation project leader with a passion for behavior change. The Penn Medicine Nudge Unit is an exciting and fast-paced opportunity for motivated, entrepreneurial individuals to improve health and effect systemic change at Penn Medicine and across the healthcare industry.
The Penn Medicine Nudge Unit is a joint venture between the Penn Medicine Center for Health Care Innovation (CHCI) and the University of Pennsylvania Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE). Founded in 2016, the Penn Medicine Nudge Unit is the world's first behavioral design team embedded within a health system. The Nudge Unit leverages insights from behavioral and implementation science to design, implement, evaluate, and disseminate scalable nudges to steer medical decision-making toward higher-value care, improved patient outcomes, and more equitable health care delivery. Consistent throughout the work of the Nudge Unit is a desire to make the right choice the easy choice.
Since 2016, the Penn Medicine Nudge Unit worked on more than 100 projects, most of which include testing interventions within health systems, including more than 25 randomized trials resulting in over 100 publications in leading medical journals such as NEJM, JAMA, Nature, and PNAS. The Nudge Unit currently supports a broad portfolio of projects to improve care with Penn Medicine as well as an extramurally funded program of research aimed at improving acute care and the prevention of overdoses and injuries. In its portfolio, the Nudge Unit commonly leverages electronic health records, automated text messaging, smartphone apps, and other digital interventions to change behavior.
The Design Strategist manages Nudge Unit projects focused on reimagining the way we deliver care and influence the behavior of both clinicians and patients at Penn Medicine leveraging principles of human-centered design, behavioral economics, and implementation science. The Design Strategist collaborates with other Nudge Unit, CHCI staff, and project partners to apply methods of design and innovation to understand a variety of complex problem spaces and define opportunities for “nudges” to improve health outcomes and patient and staff experience. The Design Strategist leads project strategy, stakeholder relationships, and engages with CHCI leadership to take new models of healthcare delivery from development to scaled impact.
The Design Strategist must have the ability to lead problem definition through deep contextual research and data analysis, think divergently about how the application of behavioral economics can improve health outcomes and experience, test solution concepts through creative and rapid experimentation, and ultimately help guide the implementation of new, high-impact, solutions.
