When using digital therapeutics a vast amount of personal data is collected directly from the user and processed in a complex digital ecosystem.
In most cases, accurate health and behavioural profiles of the person are created for the functioning of the solution. This practice might entail risks of being observed or the possibility of repurposing patients’ profiles.
When choosing a diabetes management app;
