Full biography of Talya Miron-Shatz

Miron-Shatz has a PhD in psychology from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem, did her post-doctoral work at Princeton University with Nobel Laureate Daniel Kahneman, taught at Wharton Business Schooll, and is now a full-time professor at the Ono Academic College and a visiting researcher at Cambridge University. She is an internationally acclaimed expert in medical decision making, with over 60 academic publications on topics such as information comprehension, patient participation in shared decision making, assessment of birth experiences, happiness, and more. She also has extensive industry experience.

She worked with numerous pharmaceutical companies including Pfizer, Abbvie, Boringer-Ingelheim, BMS, Novartis, and others on projects around leading physician advisory boards, designing patient outreach and communication, training sales reps, and more. In her work with technology giants, such as NantMobile, she led teams of engineers in introducing an entire layer of psychological drivers to facilitate adherence to medication. Similarly, she has helped multiple startups—from Healarium to Glucome—hone their operating mechanisms in conveying health information to change patient behavior.

For several years, Dr. Miron-Shatz co-organized the eHealth Venture Summit at MEDICA, the world’s largest medical device exhibition (with Dr. Stefan Becker), and ran the Pharma 2.0 series for NYC’s Health 2.0 meetup.

As a keynote speaker for Donate Life America’s annual conference, she demonstrated the use of behavioral economics to get people to sign up as donors. In her frequent speaking engagements—Financial Times NY and London, Digital Health Congress, Nudge Portugal, and numerous academic and industry events, she demonstrates her commitment to disseminating her knowledge around improving how people engage with their medical decisions and health.

Her book ‘Your Life Depends On It: What You Can Do to Make Better Choices about Your Health’ (Basic Books, Hachette) deals with the ‘healthcare consumer’ culture, and how it can become truly effective. Thanks to her unusually broad perspective, she offers takeaways for patients, doctors, and healthcare systems.

The stakes for medical decision-making are so high, and the circumstances so fraught, that it’s no wonder that most people feel overwhelmed.

Your Life Depends on It is not just an invaluable guide for patients; it’s also a manifesto for the healthcare system.'
