The development of wireless technology and data-driven apps has led to an influx in tools that can help track behaviour patterns, particularly in the health and wellbeing sector.
However any disclosure of personal health-related data to legitimate entities (such as healthcare providers) to receive some utility in return (e.g., in the form of better health monitoring services) comes at the expense of a possible loss of privacy, which may have unintended and potentially adverse effects to the patients/users.
This project is concerned with issues around data privacy in relation to the sharing of healthcare patient information/signal.
