We have the deepest respect and appreciation for the amazing gift that patients are giving to healthcare education when they agree to become ReelDx patients. Patients participate with informed consent, and each of our case contributors has a careful conversation with them and/or their caregivers about their rights and options if they consent to be filmed.

Among their protected rights, filmed patients have the right to withdraw consent at any time, and we will remove their video case from ReelDx. We also ensure that no protected health information is associated with a video case, such as names, medical record numbers, etc.

It’s worth noting that we have never had a patient or caregiver withdraw consent, and close to 100% of patients who are asked, consent to be filmed. We have consistently found that patients and their families have a strong and sustained desire to play a role in improving medical education.
