    The ethics of USE as well as ACCESS will be vital.  In particular, when it is or is not (as well as when it might be) adversely discriminating against an individual.  Genetic data is an obvious example: just because a person has a genetic disposition to a disease or behaviour, AND it is known, the question remains:  SHOULD it be used.  The answer is not simple!  The same applies to lifestyle behaviour that is revealed from health IoT devices:  WHEN can WHO do WHAT with that knowledge?  This includes the fringe dwellers in the health information ecosystem such as insurers and developers of government policy, as well as anybody involved in the clinical setting or health research.
