Do I need to submit all of my medical records, such as physical examination reports from other medical institutions?

After obtaining your consent, HKGI will, when necessary, access and analyse your medical records in the Hospital Authority and Clinical Genetic Service, Department of Health, including:

  • Records of hospitalisation or clinic visits;
  • Clinical records and laboratory test results; and
  • Radiology and imaging records such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, X-rays or clinical photos, etc.


Moreover, if necessary, the Project team will contact you to collect more information, such as your health records kept at other medical institutions. The Project team will explain and invite you to sign extra consent forms if needed. You may decide at that time if you wish to provide additional information.
