dc.description.abstractAbstract: With the rise of telemedicine, wearable healthcare, and the greater leverage of ‘big data’ for precision medicine, various challenges present themselves to organisations, physicians, and patients. Beyond the practical, financial, and clinical considerations, we must not ignore the ethical imperative for fair and just applications to improve the field of healthcare for all. Given the increasing personalisation of medicine and the role technology will play at the interface of healthcare delivery, a thorough understanding of the challenges presented is critical for future physicians who will navigate a novel environment. This article aims to explore the ethical challenges that the adoption of digital healthcare technology presents, contextualised at multiple levels. Potential solutions are suggested to initiate a discussion about the future of medicine and digital healthcare.
