Bio statement

I am a decision scientist (Ph.D). who uses insights on patient comprehension and motivation to arrive at their implications to adherence and outcomes. Some background: did my post-doc with Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman at Princeton University, 2005- 2009; taught consumer behavior at Wharton, and am now the founding director of the Center for Medical Decision Making at the Ono Academic College. My research deals with patient ocmprehension and motivation, and can be summarized under medical decision making, also involving physicians. I publish in peer-reviewed journals (Psychological Science, Health Psychology and more) and books (Oxford University, MIT Press). I have been very fortunate to combine my theoretical knowledge with my passion for change, and have been putting my extensive knowledge of decision making to use in my role as co-founder and CEO of CureMyWay, a start-up company that promotes behavioral change towards better health. My commitment to bridging industry and decision science led me to creating and chairing the startup panel at the Medicine 2.0 conference, and leading the Pharma 2.0 series for NYC's Health 2.0. I bring my insights on consumer and prescriber behavior and barriers to my work with big pharma: Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Novartis, BMS, Edelman PR, Draftfcb, and other health and media companies. Psychology Today is where I write more freely on health consumer issues.

Effects of Symptom Presentation Order on Perceived Disease Risk
Talya Miron-shatz*, Virginia Kwan, Sean Wojcik, Ashley Votruba, Christopher Olivola

Objective: The ability to distinguish meaningful patterns from meaningless coincidences is a vital part of human cognition. However, the mind is often too quick to infer meaning from coincidences. People expect random processes to produce fewer and shorter repetitions of the same event than is actually the case – the so-called “gambler’s fallacy”). This research examines how the appearance of streaks in symptom checklists influences personal assessments of risk. Methods: We carri...

From Idea to Company - Start Up Pitch and Expert Panel
Talya Miron-shatz*, Jay Mohr*, Joseph C. Kvedar*, Jack J. Young*, William R. Cowen*

A two-hour panel where academics who have an idea (and sometimes already results and funding) present it to the audience, as well as to an esteemed panel of experts, representing various angles of the industry. The panelists then provide the companies with valuable feedback, which informs both the companies and the entrepreneurs in the audience about the process to create a company or to receive venture capital funding. Think "Dragons' Den" or "Shark Tank" for ehealth/mhealth! Pitches to b...

The start-up panel is a unique encounter between scientists who are also entrepreneurs, and industry experts from VCs (venture capital firms), pharma, and other potnetial interested parties. We invite anyone who has an idea and have started implementing it, in varying degrees of maturity, to present and receive invaluable feedback and exposure. Even merely at...

Stefan Becker*, Alexander Mertens, Christopher Brandl, Sven Meister, Talya Miron-Shatz, Urs-Vito Albrecht*, Andreas Keck, Anna Mitchell, Andreas Kribben, Eckhard Nagel

Background: Drug adherence is a problem in the management of patients with chronic conditions. Numerous mobile applications try to support users in their regular and correct drug intake.
