    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;This paper aims to shed light on the phenomenon of citizen adoption of digital health mechanisms. The study draws upon theories from information systems and economics to propose and operationalize a model explaining users&amp;rsquo; uncertainty to adopt digital health and contribute with their own personal data.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;We further conduct a design-based examination of block chains and their potential to enable trustworthy transactions of personal health data.The results of our research support block chains as important technological artefacts in data-intensive digital health contexts: block chains nurture citizens&amp;rsquo; trust by providing five technology affordances: Decentralized management of information, End-to-End communication, Controlled Transparency, Irreversibility and Self-executing contracts.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
