How to create a genogram with infection information

Genopro 2020 brings a series of new tools that help tracking infection and general medical history data of individuals, families, and communities.

The heart of the new features is the new Medical History Panel that can be found in the properties window of a person. In this panel you can register the history of symptoms, tests, test location, test dates, diagnosis, vital signs, and source documents. We include a list of possible infections and viruses such as: Chlamydia, Cholera, COVID-19, Dengue, Gonorrhea, Hepatitis C, HIV / AIDS, Influenza, Measles, Meningitis, MERS, SARS, SARS-CoV-2, Smallpox, and more. Of course you can add your own by simply typing the name you wish to add.

If you wish to add a series (history) of results, readings, diagnosis for one particular individual, you can simply click on the new button, to keep adding rows of values that can be viewed at any time, and also show up on the new Medical History table (shown below).

When you add a new test result, your genogram automatically will display an icon on the person depending on the test result. you can of course, turn this off on the display panel. The predefined test results include: Tested and Awaiting Results, Tested Positive, Tested Positive and Recovered, Tested Negative, Inconclusive, Other.
