The widespread use of mobile smart devices and wearables has the potential to change how clinical research is conceptualized and conducted. Participants’ data may now be leveraged for a variety of health purposes, including the development of remote screening and diagnostic tools, early intervention programs, and the promotion of public health. While these developments can make research participation less burdensome, they also raise ethical and regulatory challenges around acceptable levels of privacy risk, necessary precautions for safeguarding participants’ confidentiality, and the optimal approach to risk mitigation.
