Background: Technology-enabled healthcare or smart health has provided a wealth of products and services to enable older people to monitor and manage their own health conditions at home, thereby maintaining independence, whilst also reducing healthcare costs. However, despite the growing ubiquity of smart-health, innovations are often technically driven, with little regard for the needs or wants of the user or older person. The purpose of the current study was to facilitate a debate about the positive and negative perceptions and attitudes towards health digital technologies. 2) Methods: We conducted Citizens’ Juries to enable a deliberative inquiry into the benefits and risks of smart health technologies and systems. Transcriptions of group discussions were interpreted from a perspective of life-worlds versus systems-worlds. 3) Results: 23 Participants of diverse demographics contributed to the debate. Views of older people were felt to be frequently ignored by organisations implementing systems and technologies. Participants demonstrated diverse levels of digital literacy and a range of concerns about misuse of technology. Our interpretation contrasted the life-world of experiences, hopes and fears with the system-world of surveillance, efficiencies and risks. 4) This interpretation offers new perspectives on involving older people in co-design and governance of smart health and smart homes.
