As The Medical Futurist Institute, we analyze how Digital Health technologies could contribute to healthcare while keeping the focus on the human touch. This survey helps us assess how physicians today look at new technologies.


It takes about 5 minutes to complete the survey and we do not collect any data about those completing it. We will publish the findings in an open-access peer reviewed paper. If you are a resident, please skip question 5.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
