There is no reason for it not to be tracked in your data warehouse, which means now is the time to start planning for the introduction of it.

I would also be aware of the potential risks involved; there are many privacy concerns involved and with the Health Insurance Privacy and Accountability Act (HIPAA), privacy is much more of a concern then it used to be.
