Sociomaterial Performativity of the Surveillant Assemblage on Healthcare Platforms

Conventional surveillance theories do not suffice to describe the contours and effects of surveillance in the datafication of health. I propose a sociomaterial lens for understanding how surveillance functions and produces outcomes on healthcare platforms. I explore particular surveillance assemblages and their micro/meso/macro sociomaterial performativities, and how they reshape market practices.
