From the article: "Electronic sensors can give a medical care team direct information about their patient, from whether they are taking the medicines correctly to their physical or mental state. Sensors like this can provide dramatically better care. However, whenever there is a digital aspect involved, there is also the potential for a lot to go wrong - from hacking to privacy issues." 

A recent commentary in Nature Electronics by Sara Gerke, Timo Minssen, Helen Yu & Glenn Cohen urges the community to look at these ethical and legal issues associated with IESs.
