Frequently Asked Questions
The All of Us Research Program is a large research program. The goal is to help researchers understand more about why people get sick or stay healthy. The All of Us Research Program is part of the Precision Medicine Initiative®.
We hope that more than one million people will join the All of Us Research Program. People who join will share information about their health, habits, and what it’s like where they live. By looking for patterns in this information, researchers may learn more about what affects people’s health.
The All of Us Research Program will last for 10 years or more. This will allow researchers to study health over time.
If you decide to join the All of Us Research Program, you will be contributing to an effort to improve the health of generations to come. You also may learn about your own health.
If you join, you will be contributing to research that may improve health for everyone. Our goal is to understand why people get sick or stay healthy. Here are some examples of what researchers might be able to discover from their research:
- Better tests to see if people are sick or are at risk of getting sick
- Better mobile apps to encourage healthy habits
- Better medicine or information about how much of a medicine is right for each person
Also, you will be able to see your All of Us Research Program information, which might be interesting to you. You may also learn about your health. If you choose, you will be able to share your All of Us information with your health care provider.
Your privacy is very important, and we will take great care to protect it if you join. Here are a few of the steps we will take:
- Information we collect will be stored on protected computers. We will limit and keep track of who sees the information.
- We will remove your name and other direct identifiers (like your Social Security number) from your information and replace them with a code. There is a master list linking codes to names. This list is kept secure, and very few people have access to it.
- To work with your health information, researchers must promise not to try to find out who you are.
- We will tell you if there is a data breach.
- The All of Us Research Program has Certificates of Confidentiality from the U.S. government. This will help us fight legal demands (such as a court order) to give out information that could identify you.
Still, loss of privacy is a risk of taking part in the All of Us Research Program. Even without your name, there is a chance someone could figure out who you are. Your information could be misused. We believe the chance of this is very small, but it is not zero.
