Hello GNU Health Team

A typical patient evaluation for a new problem might be:

Patient describes new signs and symptoms
Physician examines patient (all 
relevant body systems)
Vital signs etc measured and recorded
Physician reviews 
social and family history
Presumptive diagnosis made
New investigation(s) 
ordered (Lab, Imaging)
New prescription(s) written
Referral to other clinician 
made eg Physiotherapy
Draft care plan created

It would be very useful if all 
these functions could
be provided by adjacent TABS on the main patient 

The next patient visit might be for an "evaluation review"

or progress report.

Might it be possible to "link" related evaluations to a 

particular diagnosis/problem?

Should different "Types" of evaluation be 
new problem, review problem, annual health check etc.

Healthcare is 
VERY complex isn't it!
