Sure, it just needs to be implemented.

It already is there. Any table inheriting from audit_fields
has a modified_by field that's automatically set to
current_user on insert/update. The revision history of
modified_by is available in the corresponding audit trail
table. Applications may want to use this information with the
staff table or v_staff view which can map db user names to
clinical staff. There is also a "sign" field in staff that
stores up to 5 characters of a short signature.

What you mean, down the road ?  GnuMed is auto-importing lab
results today. If you want to record this fact in your
installation just create a db user/staff role that is used
for auto-importing lab results only.
