The information and blood samples you provide will be used to study a variety of medical conditions. Research studies have used the INSPIRE registry to:
Research genetic (inherited) and environmental causes of disease.
Evaluate risk factors known to cause health problems or make them worse. (A risk factor is something that increases your chance of getting a disease.)
Research behaviors and lifestyles (the ways we live) that can prevent disease.
Understand how treatments can be tailored to each person’s health needs.
These studies are rapidly changing the way medical care is provided every day. The information stored in the INSPIRE registry will be used in the future - in ways we can’t imagine right now. This registry has the potential to assist many researchers at Intermountain Healthcare and around the world. Our goal is to improve the lives of our patients now and for many years to come.
