How siblings are linked as Family members:
  • Members are linked as family based on how they are documented in the Contacts field in the Register: Mother OR Father.
  • It is very important to COPY the biological parent contacts from one sibling to another so that they are linked properly.
  • Patients with the same Mother and/or Father will be linked as Genetic Family Members.
