    • Who Needs a Doctor Anymore? Risks and Promise of Mobile Health Apps

      Abstract: Personal health monitoring is a hot topic. With bracelets and dongles, we keep track of our heart rate, exercising, sleep, and more. We have become our own doctors and coaches. Improving citizens' health brings the society significant savings and more efficient services, besides healthier citizens. Health data also has important value beyond healthcare, e.g. in insurance and advertising. Smart phones and associated cloud services are the key platform for personal health monitoring. Apps and services for this purpose proliferate. Can we trust their automated analysis functions? Risks inevitably rise. Misplaced sensitive data can be embarrassing, costly and dangerous. Data mining may uncover identifiable information from seemingly anonymous data. Questions of system architectures, security approaches and data ownership arise. How to extract maximal benefits from health data with minimal risks? Field experiments are underway - in your pockets.

      The panel is led by: Pertti Huuskonen, Bsoniq Ltd, Finland (
