What is it about?

Many healthcare organisations do not possess cyber skills and are faced with barriers to the adoption of smart manufacturing technologies, e.g., cost. These barriers trigger ethical concerns related to responsibility of cyber risks in shared healthcare systems.

Why is it important?

The advancement of IoT devices in the medical field spans into monitoring managing extremely challenging illnesses, such as Parkinson’s disease monitoring or depression and mood monitoring and includes some of the most advanced methods in the medical field, such as ingestible sensors and connected inhalers. This presents opportunities for remote monitoring and management of exceptionally challenging diseases and illnesses, which brings the focus of IoT devices in monitoring and managing future waves of the COVID-19 pandemic.


The balance of comparison on COVID-19 and IoT-enabled medical systems, as subjects in existing literature, lack cohesion. This study applied a bibliometric analysis of large research data records to address the ethical problems in shared risks from IoT systems during the COVID-19 pandemic.
