There are already processes to automatically fill in a Page of Life
with the data coming processes such as medical evaluations,
health conditions or genetic information. Hospitalization will be next,
so the main information gathered in the hospitalization process it will
be automatically sent to a new Page of Life.

One difference between a Page of Life and other transactional processes
is that the PoL stores information in a semi-structured way, that is
sent to the GNU Health Information System, and then can be read by any
client (web portal, mobile application, GNU Health Hospital Management
System, etcetera).

Keep up the good work, my friend.

All the best
