E-Health Ethics During the Corona Crisis and Beyond: Lessons From the Pandemic

Project summary

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, prevention and (long-term) care now often have to be provided remotely. Healthcare providers make use of various e-Health applications. Consider, for example, consultations via video calling, apps for self-monitoring, detecting infections and virtual visits of loved ones. Much consultation between healthcare providers also took place virtually. What is new is that e-Health replaced direct interaction and was not only a supplement to regular care. This “natural experiment” aims to learn how e-Health can be deployed in an ethically and legally responsible manner during and after the corona crisis.
