How are healthcare providers‘ perspectives regarding AI related to how they interact with the technology?

We plan to conduct expert interviews with Chief Technology Officers and leading researchers who focus on AI in healthcare. In these interviews, we want to investigate the prevalence of AI-enabled support systems and challenges regarding their implementation as well as ethical concerns. Further, we want to invite physicians, nurses and technicians to mixed-profession focus groups to assess the status quo of their knowledge, expectations, concerns as well as their experience with (potentially AI-enabled) technology in their everyday work routine.

Based on the insights gained from the professionals and literature on technology acceptance, we will develop a questionnaire to examine how human and environmental factors contribute to the perception of AI-algorithms and trust in their performance among all healthcare workers.
