Glasgow, Scotland

The second day of the ESHG 2015 conference was again well attended and kept us busy all day. PedigreeXP’s look and feel has impressed, with clear symbols, good visual overview, great zoom features and easy controls to add new family members and set characteristics of affected family members.

“It’s been very exciting to hear about the various projects and needs in the genetics community and we look forward to continue these discussions more in-depth with you over the next few months.” said Jani Söderhäll, the Managing Director of PC PAL and added “We know we have a great product and it’s been a true pleasure showing the demanding audience how this tool can ease their work”.

Our visualization engine comes from our 20+ years of experience with high quality on-screen presentations of growth charts to track all aspects of children’s growth. An area where we are a market leader. We’re reusing that same engine in our pedigree drawing tool for instantly redrawn pedigrees as they are built up and to make sure even very large pedigrees are easily appreciated and accessible on screen.

The program shown, now also available as a free trial, is the stand alone application for single users. It will be followed by the PedigreeXP Pro version, complying with electronic medical record requirements such as user authentication, audit trails, SQL Server data storage and allow sharing of pedigrees across a team.

For integration into hospital wide electronic health records the PedigreeXP Module will use the same full featured charting engine to provide pedigree drawing capability to the all medical staff within an organization. This is the same kind of technology we’ve used of the last 15 years to integrate our powerful growth chart engine into many electronic medical record systems in Europe and the USA.

Draw a three-generation pedigree with PedigreeXP within seconds!

(EN | FR)

All you need to do is enter some basic information on the proband patient in the “Start new pedigree” screen.

No need to fill in a multi-page questionnaire for that. PedigreeXP has taken a different approach to adapt to your busy daily clinical practice.

Proband gender is the only mandatory data to start drawing a pedigree. Then you can add his/her relationships: siblings, spouse, children. Other data can be entered later if the current consultation doesn’t allow you to go through detailed family history of each family member.

A personalized pedigree title and a family ID can be added to help you organize your pedigree files.

Your pedigree is ready and you can start go through the family history interpretation immediately.

Concevez un arbre généalogique sur trois générations en quelques secondes avec PedigreeXP !

(EN | FR)

Tout ce que vous avez à faire, c’est d’entrer les informations de base concernant le proband dans l’écran de saisie « Start new pedigree ».

Nul besoin de remplir un questionnaire de plusieurs pages pour cela. PedigreeXP a choisi une approche complètement différente pour répondre aux besoins de votre pratique quotidienne.

Seule la saisie du genre du proband est requise pour démarrer le dessin de l’arbre généalogique. Ajoutez ensuite ses relations familiales en quelques clics : frères, sœurs, enfants, époux/épouse. Le reste des informations pourra être saisi plus tard si vous n’avez pas le temps d’aller en détail dans l’histoire familiale durant la première consultation.

Vous pouvez également personnaliser l’arbre en lui donnant un titre et en attribuant un identifiant de famille.

Votre arbre généalogique est dessiné et vous pouvez en commencer son interprétation immédiatement.

Once imported, the chart can be completed with persons, relationships and examination results, allowing a better understanding of the affection in the drawn family.
