Introducing the Health Conditions Module

Some of you may have already noticed that we recently added a new feature to Genes for Good called Health Conditions -- you can find it in the "Participate" section of the Genes for Good app! When you have a chance, please take a moment to enter any diagnoses that may not be captured in our existing surveys. 

 

 

In the past, we've received requests to research specific conditions. However, it is not feasible to have a separate survey for each condition, especially when those conditions are rare. This module will allow you to enter virtually any condition you may have, and if we have enough participants with a particular disease, we will certainly conduct research on it! You can also specify whether the conditions you enter are past or current diagnoses.

This module uses a subset of SNOMED Clinical Terms; these codes are used for coding health and disease information. If you can't find a condition in the list, please contact us. It may be under a different name, or we may need to add it in.

We're very excited about this feature and hope you are too! Feel free to contact us with any questions, concerns, or suggestions. We hope to be sharing some cool health tracking and genetic observations over the next few months.
