Health Information Donor
Blood or organs donor is a common actitudes in most countries. Based on these concepts and adopting them to the moderm medicine where statistics are a key factor (data mining analysis to identify evidences for further biological studies), I propose the information donor as a way of safe lifes.
Modern medical studies are demanding more and larger population samples with appropiated distributions according historical record, localization, genetic characteristics, etc. Getting all these data is expensive and complex. What better contribution each of us could make than provide/donate our own information: medical record, habits: meals, sports, smoking, drinking, peculiarities of our family, etc through internet.
In a nutshell, is the willingness to offer in a strict confidence our personal information that may be useful por medical research. All these information could be in a database accessible to the scientific community, serving as the basis for selection of sample population to submit more concrete new forms / queries of information relating to particular studies.
