This chapter examines the process of knowledge sharing and use of information technologies in health care, drawing upon evidence from the use of the Internet for health purposes in the European Union. The Internet appears as a relatively new information source with the potential to bring efficiency gains and health production benefits. However, little is known about the specific determinants of the search for information, especially under heterogeneous cultural and institutional settings, such as those of European Union member states.

Keywords:   knowledge sharing, information technology, European Union, health innovation, Internet
