Including contributions from international scholars, papers in this collection explore diverse fields of healthcare (reproductive health, primary care, diabetes management, mental health) within which heterogenous technologies (health apps, mobile platforms, smart textiles, time-lapse imaging) are becoming increasingly embedded.

Explores how digital technologies are increasingly being developed, implemented and used in the delivery of health and care, contributing to potentially disruptive changes in how healthcare is practised and experienced by health professionals, patients and those within their wider care networks
Demonstrates how sociological theory, often at the intersection with science and technology studies (STS), can help us understand these changes
Offers insights into the promissory discourses that constitute digital health and the ways in which knowledge, connectivity and power are re-configured in a range of situated health and care practices
