Donating your organs will save countless lives, but organs are not the only thing you can donate to save a life! Donating your medical reports can do more than you think.
Many of us are aware that we can donate organs when we die. It is very important and useful. Each donor could save many lives as they donate multiple organs. If the donor donates his organs and tissues after his death, it is one of the most humble things one could do. More than 80% of the population does donate.
Donating Your Medical Reports
Donating medical reports is not as effective as donating organs and tissues. Patients need organs to stay alive but medical reports are also valuable. They are not going to help the patients immediately, but for the doctors, the medical records will help solve other patients’ issues without delay.
The problem is most of the medical data is not accessible once they are dead. If you donate them before it’s too late, it will help save many lives. The results of such research could be very important and valuable for cancer prevention. However, the inability to access and analyze participant’s data after they die is such a big problem for the doctors and researchers.
The patient is allowed to do whatever they wish to do with their reports. For example, you can control that the personal information you provide can be public or private. The deceased’s family cannot access the reports. Because when it comes to medical reports and records, it is very complicated.
Study by researchers from the University of Nottingham found that, “While many were motivated to donate their data on the basis of helping others, the possibility of benefiting themselves was also a significant driver for some. This suggests proponents should seek to explain the beneficial knock-on effects of sharing your data.”
Medical record donation is important and once you die the report dies along with you. So leave a legacy to science which will help others tremendously.
