APPLYING MEDICINE 2.0 TO THE I-CAN - Managing the Needs and Rights of End Users

Stephan Ruppert, Debbie Richards, Samuel Arnold, Vivienne Riches, Trevor Parmenter

Abstract

This paper considers how Medicine 2.0 features can be added to an existing e-health application known as the I-CAN (Instrument for the Classification and Assessment of Support Needs). One of the biggest problems with a social networking feature based around health concerns is the issue of privacy. Even though participation is on a completely unsolicited, opt-in basis, there are access and privacy issues involved in such a tool. A preliminary design proposal is presented which takes into account the needs, responsibilities, rights and abilities of the (direct and indirect) users.
