Today individuals are offered a multitude of possibilities to track and so manage their personal health. Wearables such as Jawbone and Fitbit allow people to monitor bodily processes and activities. Self-tracking through wearable and otherwise mobile computing has become known as the quantified self (QS). QS technologies – usually small computers that record data – provide the individual with detailed information, including sleeping habits and calories burnt. This knowledge can lead to changes in self-understanding. Although self-care has been established practice for several years (e.g., the use of home blood-pressure monitors), digital self-care by means of mobile computing – so-called m-health – is still in its introductory stages. How do self-tracking technologies change the relationship between the caregiver and patient? What new moral dilemmas arise with the use of big data in medicine?
