Abstract
A genogram is a graphical representation of medical conditions including informa-tion on age and cause of death of family members that can be used especially to access disease risk. The main purpose of this paper is to present the outcome of a preliminary study done regarding access-ing the current use of genogram in repre-senting medical family tree data. This article seeks to enable the reader to un-derstand the basics of what a genogram is and how it can be used to help medical practitioners visually understand family health and conditions based on informa-tion gathered for the family medical tree. Initial investigations suggest that geno-grams have huge potential, as they can help a lot people in various fields to visualize and understand patients’ family medical history and look for recurring patterns of illness and behaviour.
