Abstract

With the development of Internet of Things (IoT) technologies, the medical field has begun to use this technology to better cover society's needs. The users' data can be accurately collected and analyzed, and people can get quite the same level of quality of medical services without shuttling back and forth between hospitals and their homes. Smart healthcare not only reduces the social burden, but it also lowers the financial burden on end users. However, the collection and upload of massive data still have concerning data security risk, which may lead to various ethical problems and endanger the users' interests. The analysis of ethical issues, can help us to provide users or developers with suggestions and demonstrate the central role played by governments. How to balance the user experiences and ethical security is always a hot topic. The aim of this paper is to review existing literature to present recommendations to balance both the use of IoT technologies or smart healthcare and ethics to deliver accurate smart medical services.
