We do peer reviewed research about digital health to evaluate our vision.
We analyze the role of digital health technologies, especially artificial intelligence, in the future of medicine and healthcare
The mission of The Medical Futurist Institute is to initiate public discussions about how the old paradigm of the paternalistic model of medicine is transforming into equal partnership between patients and professionals and how it is aided and augmented by disruptive technologies.
By providing reports, publications and daily commentary on new technological inventions, the Institute aims at preparing every stakeholder of healthcare for adopting digital health in a way that the human component remains decisive.
