Researchers might study all or only some of your genes.We will look at your sample and your electronic health record to learn about changes in genes that keep us healthy or make us sick.
Will I receive results?
If a researcher finds something that is important to your health, then we will inform you and your healthcare provider, as well as put it in your medical record. You can decide if you wish to follow up with your healthcare provider to discuss the possibility of further testing, monitoring or treatment. All results are treated with complete confidentiality. AtlantiCare experts can help you and your healthcare provider in understanding your result.
What kind of results might I receive?
Most people in MyCode will not receive any results of their genomic testing. However, between 2 and 4 percent of participants will have a DNA that might need to be reviewed by your provider. AtlantiCare can help patients and providers understand and follow up on MyCode results.
