Hello Cerner team,

Does the Cerner Millennium EHR software enable FHIR R4 RelatedPerson resources to specify a familial relationship and use a logical identifier to point to the relative's record located somewhere else on a Cerner FHIR server? 

For example, if Bob has a sister named Alice, does Millennium make it possible for Bob's record to have a RelatedPerson resource that indicates Alice is his sister and provides a logical identifier for Alice's record?

If yes, are you able to tell me if this a common use case among Cerner Millennium clients?

Thank you for your time and support.

Hi Fenil,

Thank you for the quick response. Yes, I am aware that Cerner supports the RelatedPerson resource. What I wish to know is if Cerner uses RelatedPerson resources to point to the location of another patient's record.

Yes, you can use RealtedPerson record to find the identifiers of the person (and thereby query that person) related to the patient.
