Req-1217: Adoption history
Release Package: 2013 Format

Release Package:

2013 Format

Requirement ID:



Adoption history


The system SHALL have the ability to store, retrieve, and display the child's adoption history (whether adopted, expressed as yes or no, is sufficient).

Example: If the child is adopted then family history information captured might not be clinically relevant. Further, the decision support relying on family history may be irrelevant and therefore the EHR system should exclude family history of adoptee in decision support logic.
