Fostering participation in digital contact tracing

Dominik Rehse and Felix Tremöhlen

Information Economics and Policy, 2022, vol. 58, issue C

Abstract: Digital contact tracing is a promising digital public health intervention to manage epidemics. However, in order to reach its full potential, the technology has to be widely adopted and used. During the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic, this has not necessarily been the case. We review the literature with a focus on how participation in digital contact tracing could be fostered and provide policy recommendations on how to increase its adoption and usage as well as recommendations for further research.
