Abstract- In this paper, we review the meaning of trust, and introduce a measure of trustworthiness. This measure is used to rank cloud-based EHR solutions. The trustworthiness measure quantifies how well an EHR satisfies the provider's needs and critical operational requirements. The trustworthiness measure uses a certainty factor to weigh the quality of evidence used to evaluate the EHR. The trustworthiness model provides a framework for contextualizing and prioritizing important selection considerations and can be used with risk mitigation strategies to improve decision-making when selecting an EHR.
