Ethical and Policy Challenges in Digital Health

We know that healthcare is on the verge of a paradigm shift due to the appearance of technologies such as artificial intelligence, health sensors or robotics . New kinds of global markets for healthcare and healthcare data are emerging, and responsibility for health and well-being seems to be devolving onto the data-equipped individual. Coupled to political claims of digital ‘revolutions’ and ‘disruptions’ in healthcare policy, the digital transformation of healthcare also marks a shift in the terms on which political economic and ethical decisions about health are made in the context of the sustainability of national health systems, whether by a patient, a clinician or a commissioner. Digital technologies promise smart, convenient and personalisable servicing of individual healthcare needs, but at the same time they threaten significant changes around the ethics of privacy, around evidence-based ‘data driven’ policy formation and around organisational reform affecting patients and medical professionals, amongst other things.
