Abstract: The study is based on a research and innovation project on adoption and use of digital monitoring in municipal care services. The evolving use of technology is considered to meet future challenges in health and care services. However, the use of technological solutions in this context has also led to several challenges, and in this study, we focus on the ethical consequences of using welfare technology. Implementation projects are particularly relevant in this context because different stakeholders with different interest, values, assumptions need to collaborate closely and build integrated solutions to make such projects successful. Furthermore, it is a challenge to predict future consequences of using emerging technologies and we argue that ethical assessments must be part of the implementation process.
