Exposing Privacy Concerns in mHealth

Mobile Health (mHealth) sensing devices can help individuals work towards a healthier lifestyle or allow them to share the collected information with their doctor to diagnose health issues or manage a chronic disease. If these sensors are collecting personal health information while patients are at home or at their workplace, the sensors might record other sensitive information - like the location of their home, when they leave for work, or who they interact with - information that may in some cases be misused. Patients may be concerned about where that information is stored or who has access to it.
