I’m wondering if there is an established best practice for representing family history in the observation table. I can see two options that are both supported by standard concepts:
Based on a previous discussion I’m thinking Option 1 might make more sense? It’s certainly more flexible. Our data sources differ on which representation is used so we will need to do mapping from one to the other if we want to keep our cohort definitions consistent.
Additionally, it doesn’t seem obvious how we could specify the relationship of the family member in the observation record.
