  "description": "<p>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&rsquo; uncertainty to adopt digital health and contribute with their own personal data.</p>\n\n<p>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&rsquo; trust by providing five technology affordances: Decentralized management of information, End-to-End communication, Controlled Transparency, Irreversibility and Self-executing contracts.</p>",
