Abstract

Family history (FH) is an important risk factor for many diseases and its assessment can be a powerful tool for identifying and stratifying patients at risk. As part of an initiative to improve FH collection and decision support at Intermountain Healthcare we conducted a literature review on FH data collection and reviewed a number of current Web-based tools. An ideal list of features was produced to help implement goals of the initiative.
