The mHealth revolution brings exciting possibilities for both researchers and clinicians, but the use of this technology also raises unique ethical concerns. The purpose of this talk is two-fold. First, we will be discussing some of the most pressing ethical challenges around mHealth. This will involve looking carefully at issues around data ownership, privacy, transparency, and consent. Second, we will introduce some possible solutions. Come discuss what researchers, clinicians, and institutions can do to address ethical risk.
