This paper examines the U.S. public’s willingness to be a part of expanding HIE. We used regression modelling to identify statistically significant (p<0.05) factors associated with willingness to share health information. These included: education, concerns about insurance, privacy, trust, confidence in governance, belief in obligatory participation, and the desire for consent (permission or notification). We find willingness to share data may be overestimated, but that attention to trust and governance might increase willingness to share.
