Module Length: 
1 hour
Class Description: 

There are numerous ways private health information can be accessed beyond those HIPAA handouts your clinic or lab provides. One of the more popular consumer services includes submission of biologic samples where the services analyze DNA. Patients often search for these services because of an interest in genealogy and in response to promises of deeper insights into personal health. What should clinicians know about the risks and benefits of this type of information, particularly when it comes to education of patients about privacy?

This module will provide learners with an overview of how data is collected and stored for some of these popular services as well as what rights or risks patients may want to consider.
