You may have noticed that we have begun to ask our patients to identify their race, ethnicity and language. Gathering this information can provide important information about your individual healthcare needs.
Certain backgrounds may place people at different risks for some health conditions and diseases. By knowing about your racial and ethnic background, we can understand your potential healthcare risks and provide care that better meets your health needs.
The information you provide on your race, ethnicity, and language is confidential, yet impactful. Having this information in your medical record ensures that all of your Reliant caregivers have the information they need to help keep you healthy.
