Apropos of UML, I have had an interesting conversation with the RMIT stundents 
John Mackenzie today. Alan commented, correctly I believe, that lack of good 
documentation is responsible for gnumed's slowness over the past 18/12.
[additionally is, of course, lack of programmer time, and that much of Karsten 
& Syan's effort is
not visible to the end-user, but is important "infrastructure" work] 

Nevertheless we have not advanced as far as I had expected around the time of 
the previous conference
John identified several core features that would allow gnumed to be used under 
controlled circumstances 
for patient care by Australian GPs. This breaks an important psychological 
barrier, not 
only for developers, but in dealing with the various powers-that-be  that may 
be willing to help us.

To wit:
        -  prescription, using the PBS data we have
        -  referral letters 
        -  past history/problem list
        - importing and displaying path results (Horst, do you have specs for 
the path. files ?? "PIT" format. Can you post them to the Web?)

Interestingly clinical notes aren't on that list, as many "computerised" 
practices still use paper notes, but we might as well have it as a 'core' 
as, in any case, Karsten has done 90% of the work on this already.

Can we commit to these modules as the next step to move forward? I would like 
to draw up a basic design document before the conference covering
these areas.
