In the digital era, a large amount of health data has been documented, generated and stored in clinical evaluation and daily life, but citizen-generated health data has yet to be combined, interoperated, analysed, and made available for professionals, citizens, research institutes, and companies for secondary use. Finland is trying to build the MyData health platform, which links multiple actors to co-create health value and make it understandable for citizens. Engaging multiple actors plays a key role in transitioning to the MyData health platform in terms of continuous data sharing and co-creation. This study therefore investigates enablers, barriers, and expectations that influence the actors’ engagement with the MyData health platform. This study applied a single case study based on 30 interviews, and identified the four themes that influence actor engagement: 1) perceived technology; 2) health value co-creation; 3) perceived empowerment and social influence; and 4) perceived trustworthiness and legitimation.
