An expansion of the ecode program would be incredibly helpful for researchers across the University. Not all participants wish to use/support Amazon so being able to provide other options would be beneficial. Our participants have expressed a desire for Target, Walmart, and Walgreens. The ease of use and reporting capabilities make the ecode program highly attractive to research teams, while the immediate delivery of incentives is very attractive to participants as well, particularly younger, more tech savvy ones. This is an incredibly valuable program at UIC. Expanding it to other vendors would aid researchers in meeting their objectives in terms of recruitment and retention and would provide the best service to our research participants by providing options that are relevant to them. Thank you.
