Macadamian's blog recently shared seven principles that can be a guide to changing user behavior:
1. Reduction – Simplification of the task the user is trying to do.Do you have a wearable device? For you as the consumer, what prompts you to change your behavior with the data you collect?
2. Tunnelling – A step by step sequence of activities that guides the user through the behavior.
3. Tailoring – Provision of feedback to the user based on their actions.
4. Suggestion – Provision of suggestions to the user at the right moment and in the right context.
5. Self-monitoring – Enables the user to track and change his own behavior to achieve a predetermined outcome.
6. Surveillance – Observes the user overtly in order to increase a target behavior.
7. Conditioning – Relies on providing reinforcement (or punishments) to the user in order to increase a target behavior.
Next month at ePharma, we will have dedicate an afternoon looking at wearables and how they can impact consumers lives. Anita Burrell, Associate Vice President, Commercial Operations Effectiveness, Global Diabetes, Sanofi will be in this track to present Technology Enabling Consumers and Improving Outcomes to look at exactly how to encourage consumers to keep continuing to use the wearable devices to improve patient outcome.
