Health Advisor harnesses the 'wisdom of crowds' to generate innovative ideas and concepts designed to improve the health care system.
The Tennenbaum Institute is developing an online game for managing healthcare delivery – Health Advisor. Each player manages a set of clients through the healthcare system with a goal of maximizing the value of outcomes – the average health state of his or her clients divided by the costs of achieving this state. This goal is pursued by talking with agent-based clients about their health state, accessing information of the performance and costs of alternative providers, assigning clients to providers, and monitoring results.
