Privacy Concerns Using Consumer Health Apps


Guide

Recommended Posts

A recent report states this about consumers using health apps on Android or iOS mobile devices: 

"Clinicians should be conscious about the choices they make in relation to their app use and, when recommending apps to consumers, explain the potential for loss of personal privacy as part of informed consent. Privacy regulators should consider that loss of privacy is not a fair cost for the use of digital health services."
