Patients Entering in their Family History
Allow the patient to enter family information into the chart in the format of a family pedigree with medical history. Medical information can be entered in layman terms and ICD 10 coded after verified by health care provider. Family history of genetically transmitted diseases is paramount to a feature that is needed for PHR. This would be helpful for the personal medicine genomic future if it is placed in a searchable data base to answer questions like how many family members have diabetes or glaucoma in your family?
Family history of breast cancer, colon cancer, Alzheimer's Disease, etc. could then be searched in the EHR.
