We want you to be happy, and to be part of GNU Health. Let's
all work towards making GNU Health the best project, both from the
technical and human side.

Please check that you have the right access now.

No, it is not the same data, and it's not really a technical issue. The
medical encounter / evaluation is way richer and complex. To start, it
involves the encounter between a health professional(s) and a patient.
There are many other aspects and processes ( chief complain, HPI,
clinical findings, Dx / DDx, discharge reason, plan, ...).  It's in the
context of a medical act, normally associated to an appointment, with
the digital signature of the health professional, etc..

They are just two different models for two different things, from the
medical, administrative and legal point of views.
