A Philadelphia Inquirer article spotlights the broadening research partnership between Independence Blue Cross and various Penn Medicine projects headed by LDI Senior Fellow Kevin Volpp. The news piece spotlights the "Glow Cap" beeping pill bottle being tested at the LDI Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE) headed by Volpp, MD, PhD. The container glows and plays music to remind cardiac patients to take their medications. The medication adherence investigation is one of several research projects that combine Blue Cross patient data with Penn Medicine research teams.
