Take Part in Medical Research

Agreeing to genetics research.

Home > About Your Care > Patient Rights > Genetic Research

If you stay in a Legacy Health hospital or visit a clinic, you may be asked if you are OK with giving your medical data and/or samples for research. If you say "yes,” your blood, urine or other tissue specimens may be used in research. The data or specimens cannot be linked to you.

If you agree, all you need to do is give written permission. It’s your choice, and your decision won’t affect your care or health coverage.
