Moral Machine? - Digital Ethics in Healthcare and Insurances


April 10, 2019

15:45 - 16:45

_Hub 4, Hall 4.2

The federal government’s Data Ethics Commission has pledged to put forward a draft outlining ethical guidelines on data policy, the use of algorithms, AI and new digital products by the summer of 2019.

The challenge will be to reconcile a framework that promotes innovation on the one hand with protecting the integrity of digitally connected individuals on the other.

  • How can one define responsible patient data management?
  • Will “donating data” generally solve the problem of urgently needed data in research and industry?
  • What are digital clinical studies and what are their benefits?
  • How can one make correct use of the flow of data and what happens to it – including when someone dies?

This session is organised and held by the German Association of Health IT Vendors – bvitg e. V and the German Association of the Digital Economy (BVDW).
