Although doctors are in the top three of most trusted professions, they also have a conservative image.There is the perception that doctors are resistant to change, such as the introduction of eHealth in their practices.
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Doctors are used to change. Medicine and healthcare are areas where new developments happen on an almost daily basis.
However, just because something is new, doesn’t mean it’s better. Many doctors have learned this the hard way. That’s why we need to be convinced before we change our current practices. Not with arguments but with evidence.
It’s best to try a new idea out on a small scale first. Proof that a product or service has benefits to patients and doctors – but no major disadvantages – and we will consider it.
