With the rapid development of smart devices, big data and the Internet of Things, the concept of “smart city” has been raised and developed. Over the past decade, the concept of smart medical has received extensive attention. Currently, some simple smart medical technologies have begun to be applied, such as online appointment registration, electronic medical records, etc. This report aims to introduce the vision of “smart medical.” Based on the analytics of this study, some potential ethical problems are discovered, including privacy problems, data ownership problems, security and liability problems, and unemployment problems.
