AgeLab Commences National Physician Survey About Smart Devices

Fri, 01/20/2017
The MIT AgeLab is conducting a study asking physicians about their experiences with their patients using smart devices to collect patient-generated data. Marika Psyhojos, a graduate student in the Technology & Policy Program at MIT, designed a survey which aims to better understand the effects of smart devices on the physician-patient relationship and physician empathy. How will smart devices change the way patients, particularly older adults, interact with their physicians, and how might a change in empathy affect health outcomes for these patients?
