Add Family Member

There are two options:
  • Select from an existing Related Contact found on the Contact's page OR a member already added in this tab

NOTE: Any change to a Family Health History Relationship will NOT change the Contact's tab Relationship. The Relationship dropdown menu is to make a change if the Contact's tab Relationship does NOT reference/reflect/equal the biological relationship to the client. (e.g. a mom is designated as Caregiver on the Client's Contact tab, but needs to be Mother in Family Health History tab)

  • Click Add and create a family member (NOTE: This does NOT add a contact to the Contact's tab)


Go to top / list

  4. Enter an Effective Date and an Expiration Date.
  5. Enter a Comment as needed.
