Disclosed Personal Data Health


Medical studies initiated by partner institutions, like the Mount Sinai Asthma Health and Stanford Medicine's MyHeart Counts projects, can access 23andMe research services using a new ResearchKit app, through which customers can choose to share data. Customers of 23andMe's services can also choose to participate in other surveys to aid medical research, and provide data to 23andMe's industry, academic and non-profit partners. The data collaborative allows research partners to use 23andMe data to investigate over 1,000 diseases, conditions, and traits to identify new associations between genetic markers. 23andMe claims, "a single customer who chooses to opt into research contributes to over 230 studies on a variety of health topics," accelerating medical research and leading to significant discoveries for less cost and less time.
