With special thanks to our partners Patientpoint who kindly share their survey findings for this blog post. 

In partnership with Digital Health Coalition, we recently asked 206 physicians about their attitudes and behaviors regarding emerging patient engagement technology—how they’re using it, what they expect to see in the future and the benefits they hope to gain from it.

Nearly all (95%) of our respondents reported using some form of technology, and top benefits of such technology included better patient conversations, giving patients more complete information about treatment options and modernizing their exam rooms (goodbye, posters & models!)

Of note, nearly three-quarters of respondents were also comfortable with advertising appearing alongside targeted, tailored engagement technology in their practice or hospital. Here are some key findings from our results:

TECHNOLOGY IS IMPROVING THE PATIENT EXPERIENCE

77% of physicians agree the use of patient engagement technology in their office helps improve patients’ overall experience

61% are using technology in nearly all of their interactions with patients to better educate and engage with them

TOP 3 TECHNOLOGIES PHYSICIANS ARE USING TO BETTER ENGAGE WITH PATIENTS ARE:

58% Digital Screen usage in the WAITING ROOM

46% Mobile App

77%  Tablet usage in the EXAM ROOM

THE PHYSICIANS PERSPECTIVE

“I think patients like technology. It represents that the doctor is progressive. The waiting time is more well spent, which leads to better patient understanding and better patient care.” —Dr. Cary B., Internal Medicine, Chicago

TECHNOLOGY AND TREATMENT OPTIONS

Informing patients about their treatment options was the second biggest benefit physicians noted from using technology in their office. And according to the physicians we surveyed, if that technology also includes pharma messaging, they are comfortable with it. When asked if they would be interested in receiving free digital engagement solutions that include highly contextual, tailored content along with pharma-brand advertising, 74% of physicians said they were highly or somewhat interested

THE TOP 3 TECHNOLOGIES PHYSICIANS ARE MOST INTERESTED IN USING IN THE FUTURE 

52% Tablet usage at CHECK-IN

45% Tablet using in EXAM ROOM

44% Interactive Touchscreens in EXAM ROOM
