An article in the New England Journal of Medicine on "automated hovering" by LDI Senior Fellows David Asch, Ralph Muller and Kevin Volpp has garnered widespread press pickup since its publication in June. The NEJM piece provides an update on the new technologies being used to influence health behaviors during the 5000 hours each year that patients are living their normal lives. Some of the media coverage includes The Incidental Economist, NPR's Newsworks, Fierce Healthcare and The Philadelphia Inquirer.
Asch is a Wharton School professor of Health Care Management and Operations and Information Management, and the Executive Director of the new Penn Medicine Center for Innovation; Muller is the CEO of Penn's Health System; Volpp is a professor of both medicine at Penn's Perelman School of Medicine and Health Care Management at Wharton.
