Patient Relationship Mapping

In a number of places, we need to know the relationship between the patient and someone else. That other person might be the guarantor or may be signing a document on behalf of a patient. This relationship can be viewed either as "the relationship of the patient to the other person" or "the other person's relationship to the patient." These are really just two sides of the same coin.

As an example, in an e-signature case, if the signer is a parent and the patient is the child, and the parent is asked "What is the patient's relationship to you?", ID 18 would be used. E-signatures should use the "Patient Relationship to Person" column. Guarantor information uses the "Person's Relationship to Patient" column.
