The best way is to create a module for each implementation, that
covers the specifics for the health center. So say the health center
is called "Larsen", you could create a module called
"health_local_larsen" and there include all the data, views, reports,
users, access control, etc.. that is only for that health center.

The module structure will be the same as other module, just with local

No. They won't be overwritten, but if you have them at DB level, they
only exist at that instance. I like to have it encoded in xml, so I
can recreate an environment from scratch with all the info. Maybe the
security profiles is not the best example, but for views, reports,
etc.., best it to have them at module level.

Take a look in the trunk to WHO_list_of_essential_medicines.xml . This
one is now the main file.
