When I go to my primary gp in the States it's like that too, so that
workflow definitely makes sense to me.

Put simply, the default permissions for Health Nurse fit very well with
the setup you are describing. Specifically, they can create, write, and
read Patient Evaluations: Jane Doe -> Right click -> Relate ->
Evaluations -> New. The evaluation includes all the relevant fields:
vitals, mental status, diagnosis, etc.
An example workflow: frontdesk user creates the patient (if first
visit), then nurse sees the patient and takes vitals (and other basic
info). Afterwards, doctor or physician assistant finishes the visit.
All the pertinent information will be in the evaluation.
The rounds models are for traditional nursing wards not, as you said,
the previous scenario. The default access schema works for that, too.
There are undoubtedly some fields/models that are a bit
context-specific. Yet the scenario you described should *not* need
significant customization. In general, I think varied mixing of access
groups can cover the most common use cases.
Hope that helps!
