Digital health is a booming sector, and many technologies have been pushed out without due ethical consideration.
Although guidance is available on the topic, none existed for charities so we commissioned DataKind UK to research existing ethical principles and determine which are applicable to medical research charities.
This research, in combination with input from charities and ethics experts, distilled a set of core principles into a framework for charities to use to navigate the digital health space.
AMRC and Mills & Reeve have developed a 'A sense of direction for artificial intelligence' report that reviews the ethical problems and challenges that arise from AI in a health context and the likely outcome for its regulation. You can find guidance on partnering with the tech industry on our partnering for patients page.
You can explore case studies demonstrating the vital role charities play in digital health as well as key learnings and recommendations for how charity digital content can be better signposted in our 'Digital signposting ensuring patients get the right information at the right time' report.
