3 Most Efficient Ways to Earn from Paid Medical Surveys on your Phone

You do paid medical surveys in your spare time. But what if you only have a few minutes of spare time? You join these medical survey panels.

Mobile medical surveys to get paid on the go

When the market falls off a cliff, everyone starts looking for ways to boost their income. Physicians and other healthcare professionals are no different.

We’ve already covered a more exhaustive list of paid medical survey panels along with reasons why it feels like you are always getting screened out of the invitations you do get.

However, in today’s post, we’ll take a look at the most convenient paid medical survey opportunities of the bunch. These are survey panels that either have easy to use mobile apps or mobile optimized websites and survey invitations.

Personally, I like to complete these medical surveys when I have a few extra minutes to kill. A lot of times, that means I’m away from my desktop. I always have my phone on me, so the more surveys I can do on my mobile device, the more honoraria I can earn.

Below are the market research panels to join for paid medical surveys that you can complete anywhere you have an internet connection. I've included the links to the websites where you can register, should you so choose, rather than the app. It'll be clear why later.

1. MDForLives

MD for Lives Paid Medical Surveys Mobile App on Google Play Store

MDForLives is a relatively new medical survey panel, but one that is growing quickly. If you’ve been doing paid medical surveys for as long as I have, you remember the days of clunky, unfriendly user interfaces. In fact, you might still see them regularly.

However, MDForLives is different. The app is intuitive, useful, and actually works.

As you can see, I’ve accrued a small amount of pocket money by taking MDForLives medical surveys since my last redemption. If you register on their website through our link, you will automatically be credited with $10 or $20, just for signing up.

Physicians and other healthcare professionals are eligible for a $20 registration bonus, while healthcare administrators and other non-clinical staff can still earn an easy $10 for signing up.

2. InCrowd

InCrowd Paid Physician Surveys

InCrowd doesn’t have a mobile app, but it easily has one of the most mobile-friendly user interfaces. Not only are InCrowd medical surveys optimized for mobile use, they are also very short, and easy to complete when you truly have only a few minutes of free time.

Hot tip: you can make any website (including this one!) look like a mobile app by adding the page to your home screen. Tap the 3 dots in the top left corner of chrome on your mobile device and select “Add to Home screen” towards the bottom.

I don’t know about you, but I find a lot more five minute breaks throughout the day than I do hour long breaks. And with InCrowd, it seems to me the honorarium is generally pretty high for the short time commitment. Most of the surveys I’ve completed paid between $10 and $20 for three to five minutes of my time.

They also credit your account $1 or $2 each time you get screened out of a survey, which is pretty nice.

3. ZoomRx

ZoomRx will be the final entry on this list of convenient mobile-optimized paid medical surveys. There are other medical survey apps, but they are not the most convenient or user-friendly, in my experience.

However, ZoomRx offers a modern, functional mobile app for Android and iOS.

There are a few benefits of registering for ZoomRx paid medical surveys. The first is similar to InCrowd above, as they offer short, easy to complete surveys that you can do in just a few minutes.

Another benefit of joining ZoomRx is the ability to make extra money by referring your colleagues to the platform. Once your profile is verified, you’ll get a personal link that you can share with other healthcare professionals. You’ll earn $30 for each referral, once they complete their first survey.
