Workshop 11

Do The Right Thing: The Ethics Of Digital Health

Theme 3
Tuesday 24 September 11:00-12:30
Room: 1 + 2

The use of data in healthcare is widespread and is expected to increase even more in the coming years. Data-driven innovations will have a significant impact on society, including the healthcare sector and the workers and patients a part of it.

This impact affects a wide range of human and societal values such as privacy, autonomy, freedom and equality and therefore, a dialogue on the ethics of data in healthcare is necessary in order to ‘do the right thing’.

This workshop will discuss the importance of data ethics by using the dialogue model: “The ethical data assistant”, before inviting participants to join us in subgroups for a quick tour through the ethical landscape using various case studies.

Participants are invited to share their own cases in projects or products they are working on. The workshop will be concluded in a wrap-up session with brief feedback from the subgroups.

Speakers:
Jaco van Duivenboden, senior advisor; Michiel Faber, advisor, both at Nictiz the centre of expertise for eHealth in the Netherlands.
