In July 2016 The American Medical Association conducted a comprehensive study of physician’s motivations and requirements for the adoption of digital clinical tools. The AMA has now repeated the study to determine the degree to which adoption has occurred in the past 3 years and identify attitudinal shifts among physicians towards their use and adoption.
- There has been an increase in the number of physicians that see a definite advantage in digital tools
- Adoption of digital tools has grown significantly among all physicians regardless of gender, specialty or age.
- Adoption of remote care tools such as tele-visits and remote monitoring had the most movement
- Awareness of most of the emerging technologies such as artificial or augmented intelligence is fairly high.
