General practitioners are the first contact point for patients and the building blocks of healthcare. Where do they stand on the issue of digital tech? The Medical Futurist Institute conducted extensive, survey-based research about the willingness of GPs to use the latest innovations in their practice and their attitude towards the future. Let’s see how could digital technology make an impact on primary care.
Where should the line be drawn when deciding whether or not to adopt disruptive technologies? As digital health brings up plenty of ethical questions, legal issues, and safety concerns, The Medical Futurist Institute decided to collect the best examples of how governments worldwide tried to adopt digital health. We hope it inspires other policy-makers to take the first steps in shaping their healthcare regulations.
The team behind The Medical Futurist works every day to facilitate the spread of digital health. Our goal is to provide the latest news as well as the relevant context about innovation in healthcare to help patients, physicians and policy-makers get the most out of technological changes. We need YOUR help to achieve this.
The Medical Futurist Institute, the very first research institute specializing in digital health, was launched on 17 October 2017. We, the team of The Medical Futurist are incredibly happy to be able to share what we have been working on with you. The aim of the Institute is to prepare every stakeholder of healthcare for gradually adopting digital health. For successfully doing so, it provides comprehensive, original scientific field research, policy papers, and recommendations on technological innovations and their broader social impact.
