  <dc:description>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’ uncertainty to adopt digital health and contribute with their own personal data.

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’ trust by providing five technology affordances: Decentralized management of information, End-to-End communication, Controlled Transparency, Irreversibility and Self-executing contracts.</dc:description>
