The general patient evaluation takes the initiating health
professional, and the signing health professional, depending on the
state of the evaluation. 

In the upcoming version, we will also include a O2M to evaluation team
members, as in the new surgery model (see AIR30 community DB for

At the end of the day, we try to have a generic patient
evaluation/encounter model, that can fit in many scenarios, from a
single doctor office, to a complex, inpatient patient evaluation.

Specific evaluation types (obstetrics / ICU / neonatal /
ophthalmology ... ) have their own models

What we've been discussing lately is the idea of having specific
classes to be able to use them in different scenarios
(evaluation/encounters, roundings, ICU ... ). So, things like "vital
signs" will be great for this.

This concept will also help Chris on the HL7 FHIR implmentation .

Thanks a lot for your feedback and suggestions ! We already have
incorporated great things from the Jamaica project, like the Injury
Surveillance System module - and I'm positive many of your ideas /
suggestions will be merged to the main branch.

Keep up the good work !

Best to all of you in the Land of Reggae
