How do Survey Sites operate?
New to survey sites? Here is a quick guide to 10 key steps they take when inviting participants to market research projects.
Data Privacy: Any reason for concern?
MDLinx uses a range of measures to safeguard your personal information. Your personal information is used to facilitate easy registration of the company’s services offered to you, but all information is taken in aggregate form to protect your privacy. MDLinx will not disclose personally identifiable information gathered from you to any third party through the site. Your email address will not be sold to a third party if you sign up to be included on the platform’s email distribution list. Your personal contact information, such as email, phone number, or mailing address, will never be provided to advertisers without your consent. Moreover, your sensitive information will not be used without your consent unless it has been anonymized or aggregated or a legal obligation such as a court order requiring the disclosure.
How to get started
MDLinx Survey App is a mobile survey platform for physicians. You must register to have full access to MDLinx services. To qualify, you must be a physician or a healthcare professional. If you have an account with one of the MDLinx affiliates, just log in instead of registering. To join, provide your name, email address, zip code, and other personal information, such as your speciality and profession. MDLinx market research gives direct access to physicians’ panels in the US, Japan, and Korea and access via partnerships to physicians’ panels in other countries.
What about the survey experience?
The services offer electronic newsletters sent via email providing specific information on selected topics and industry-sponsored programs, including an invitation to participate. Other services are pre- and post-marketing surveys and quiz content, where the responses of registered users will be recorded to provide the service. Members who participate agree that their name, speciality, profession, NPI, Zip Code, and answers to questions can be shared with the industry sponsor. The profile information matches up with defined research specifications to determine which studies you will be invited to participate in.
How much can you make on MDLinx?
The compensation amount for each research opportunity will be stated in the invitation email. Compensation will be provided in your M3 wallet and is typically available after 2 business days. Participation completed in in-person studies or at an M3 facility or partner may be compensated at the end of the event. Honoraria is typical $2 to $3 per minute but varies with the topic.
When you use the Career Center (CV), you can search for jobs, receive emails about future job postings, and employers directly contact you for job offers. If you select “apply” for the advertised job, your information from the CV will be shared by the Hiring Organization and Affiliate PracticeMatch.

What can prevent me from cashing out?
Survey invitations are only intended for the account holder unless expressly stated otherwise in the invitation itself. Registered members must be honest when posting their credentials in the Career Center. Consequently, you should not put the information you do not want to be made public in your advertisement or application.
