9.4 Resource FamilyMemberHistory - Content

Patient Care Work Group Maturity Level : 2   Trial Use Security Category : Patient Compartments : Patient

Significant health events and conditions for a person related to the patient relevant in the context of care for the patient.

FamilyMemberHistory is one of the event resources in the FHIR workflow specification.

This resource records significant health events and conditions for a particular individual related to the subject. This information can be known to different levels of accuracy. Sometimes the exact condition ('asthma') is known, and sometimes it is less precise ('some sort of cancer'). Equally, sometimes the person can be identified ('my aunt Agatha') and sometimes all that is known is that the person was an uncle.

This resource represents a simple structure used to capture an 'elementary' family history for a particular family member. However, it can also be the basis for capturing a more rigorous history useful for genetic and other analysis - refer to the Genetic Pedigree profile for an example.

The entire family history for an individual can be represented by combining references to FamilyMemberHistory instances into a List resource instance.

This resource is referenced by AdverseEvent .

This resource implements the Event and ClinicalImpression pattern.

id Level Location Description Expression
fhs-1 : Rule (base) Can have age[x] or born[x], but not both ( expression : age.empty() or born.empty() )
fhs-2 : Rule (base) Can only have estimatedAge if age[x] is present ( expression : age.exists() or estimatedAge.empty() ) fhs-3 : Not Done Reason can only be specified if NotDone is "true" ( expression : notDone or notDoneReason.exists().not() )

The Family Member History List may contain other than FamilyMemberHistory resources. For example, a full Family History could be a List that might include a mixture of FamilyMemberHistory records as well as Observation records of things like "maternal family history of breast cancer", "number of siblings", "number of female family members with breast cancer" etc.

The List representing a patient's "family history" can include Condition and Observation records that capture "family-history" relevant assertions about the patient themselves that would typically be captured as part of a family history.

Not Reviewed, Not Asked

When a sending system does not have family history about any family members or the statement is about family history not yet being asked, then the List resource should be used to indicate the List.emptyReason="notasked".

Reviewed, None Identified for Family

After reasonable investigation that there are no known items for the family member history list, then the List resource should be used to indicate the List.emptyReason="nilknown". The List.emptyReason represents a statement about the full scope of the list (i.e. the patient or patient's agent/guardian has asserted that there are no conditions or significant events for any family members to record).

Reviewed, No Information Available for a Family Member

When an individual family member's history is not available, FamilyMemberHistory.dataAbsentReason can be used to indicate why that family member's history is not available (e.g. subject unknown).

Reviewed, No Known Problems or Negated Condition for a Family Member

The FamilyMemberHistory.condition.code can be used to capture "No Known Problems" or negated conditions, such as "No history of malignant tumor of breast", for an individual family member.
