Family Records

Coming soon ...

Extensive improvements in the pedigree editor now enable physicians to follow, create and 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 Record form.

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 that enables:

  • use of predefined family templates
  • ability to import pedigrees from other systems
  • an easy way to add individuals, their relationship, parents, siblings and offspring
  • existing PhenoTips patient record can be linked to (and unlinked from) an individual in the pedigree
  • new corresponding patient record can be created for an individual in the pedigree
  • ability to update patient information without exiting pedigree editor 
  • ability to assign/reassign the proband

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 their caring physician.
