Panel Discussion
The ubiquity of mobile devices promises to address the need for continuous management of chronic conditions at lower costs. Its rapid expansion, particularly in public health, is currently largely consumer-driven and lacking in acceptable frameworks for its wider adoption into the healthcare systems. The aim of this panel is to identify the key parameters to consider in developing an ethical governance framework for Digital Health and Care.

The talk will discuss how persuasive technologies, which use computers, mobile and pervasive computing devices to influence human behaviour in a beneficial way can be used to promote healthier lifestyles, better adherence to therapy, and social connections for elderly people. Informed by research in social psychology and behavioural economics, as well as neuroscience, these technologies hold great promise in empowering seniors for independent and healthy living.
