I think a reasonable goal would be to identify, and

(I tried the swiss 'elexis' EMR software. The
private billing system implemented there, by importing an oo-calc
document with the items, prices, etc is a very good solution in my opinion).

Sounds like they built support into their EMR, wherein charge items are "picked" from an externally supplied list.

We had previously judged it reasonable for GNUmed to capture "billable items" and, in support of this, a plug-in could certainly assist capturing the per-patient items in a GNUmed table.

We still have the issue of what to *do* with the items. Options would include sending them to a printer (and then re-tagging them as "printed") or else transferring them to some other system. For any one installation of GNUmed I might advise doing one or the other because ideally you would not wish to lose track of the status of your billables.

Pending any connection to GNUmed of a program that can dispatch e-billings to one or more data brokers, the package "Simple invoices" was suggested:
