    This article discusses whether and to what extent the existing legal framework in Ireland enhances integrated care, thereby facilitating smart and healthy ageing. After having provided an overview of the functioning Irish healthcare system and of the current challenges it faces, the article moves onto examining the relevant legal framework. It then discusses the extent to which current legislation and policies have supported the move towards integrated care systems and the use of technology to facilitate independent living for older people. In that regard, this contribution supports the view that technology can act as a lever for integrated care, and highlights how technology has been used and promoted thus far. The analysis proposed in this contribution suggests that the current Irish legal framework does not actively promote smart and healthy ageing, but ensures a certain level of protection in terms of decision making and privacy rights. On the whole, this article contends that additional legislative and soft-law measures would facilitate innovative healthcare for older people.
