- Harm to a person's physical and mental well-being - this is the classic "safety" issue. We can cause personal physical or mental damage to people because we don't build or use our eHealth systems properly.
- Harm to a person's financial well-being - personal health information can be used to steal a person's identity, making them vulnerable to financial attack by identity thieves.
- Harm to a person's reputation - which can impact physical, mental and financial well-being. Release of personal information can impact a person's social standing, cause varying levels of embarrassment, and result in stigmatization.
At this stage I'm more interested in the human impacts, because addressing human health, be it physical, mental, financial or reputational, is the whole point of implementing eHealth systems in the first place.
