Digital Health Ethics: challenges and opportunities

Thursday, 2018/01/25, 16:00

Digital health encompasses a wide range of novel digital technologies related to health and medicine. Such technologies rely on recent advances in the collection and analysis of ever increasing amounts of data from both patients and healthy citizens. Along with new opportunities, however, come new ethical and policy challenges. These range from the need to adapt current evidence-based standards, to issues of privacy, oversight, accountability and public trust as well as national and international data governance and management. In this talk I discuss specifically data governance and data sharing and I propose ways of addressing the challenges they bring.
