Family Histories

About

Family histories are an essential predictor of disease risk, yet they are often incomplete, inaccurate, and underutilized in today's clinical settings. PredMed researchers are  developing improved approaches to providing more complete, accurate and detailed family histories based on electronic health records of patients and their consenting family members. These improved histories enable better clinical risk prediction and decision-making.
