«Seeing the digital as productive of citizenship, rather than facilitative of it, this paper unpacks the contested role of technology in acts of digital health citizenship. Drawing on longitudinal data collected in the English healthcare context, this article shows that digital health citizenship is produced through patients’ involvement in the generation of health knowledge, including ‘big’ health data, digital artefacts, experiential knowledge and service feedback.»
