PhenoTips 1.3 Milestone 3 released

Oct 17 2016

The PhenoTips development team is happy to announce the availability of the PhenoTips 1.3 Milestone 3 release. The highlights of the release are:

Family charts

Extensive improvements in the pedigree editor now enable physicians to follow/create/update multiple patients within one family in one place. All family members share a single pedigree, accessible either from the patient record or from the newly added Family page.

Almost all of the patient data changes in the pedigree editor will now be reflected on the corresponding patient record and vice versa. An entire family can be constructed within the pedigree editor: existing PhenoTips patient records can be linked to (and unlinked from) individuals in the pedigree and new patient records can be created as well.

The existing access rights functionality enables different physicians to share access to their patients, so one family can contain a collection of patients that are cared for by different clinicians or scientists. The access level for each individual patient is defined in the patient record by the caring physician.

Other improvements

  • Enabled creation/update of multiple patients at once via REST by POSTing a JSONArray with all patients to the /patients endpoint
  • Collaborator names are now visible in the Patient record
  • Embryonal and Fetal onsets are now subterms of a newly added "Antenatal onset" (Global age of onset and the phenotype modifiers)
  • Users are now able to select what traits are reflected in the "affected" column when exporting the pedigree as a PED file
  • Pedigrees can be exported as PNG/SVG directly from the patient record and from the pedigree export dialog
  • Enabled reassignment of the proband in the pedigree editor (P arrow)
  • Added marking to the current patient in the pedigree editor (C arrow)
  • If identifiable from the pedigree, the consanguinity status of a patient is set in their patient record
  • Credits are displayed for the vocabularies in use

Bug fixes

  • When pushing patient data PhenomeCentral rejects logins from clients using newer PhenoTips versions (pushing from 1.3M2 to 1.3M1 fails)
  • Export database as Excel file fails in some cases
  • Patient creation through REST API fails in some cases
  • Corrected the order of phenotypes saved in the "Prenatal and perinatal history" section
  • Phenotypes from systems not found in the mapping, such as "Endocrine" or "Voice", are placed under the heading of "Other"
  • Guest users cannot create patients (on instances that are supposed to allow that)
  • The pedigree editor UI doesn't display fully with the embedded skin
  • Many minor UI fixes in various parts of the application
