I have read you refer to FEBRL (spleling?) on openhealth
before. IMO it would behoove us to consider this code being
one way to select patients.

I should like to see that code and read the design
considerations if possible. URLs ?

Certainly so. GnuMed business objects are *meant* to be
specific. They are not intended to be an ORM although right
now they do include a rudimentary one due to lack of selecting
and using a good generic one. I behold that it should be
worthwhile to consider using your ORM inside the business

I'd think that Christof (Meigen) might be interested in that
aspect for the normcurves/measurements work - R is a powerful statistical
package. It's being used in OIO, too...

Tim, I have been trying to tout *exactly* that to our public health
authorities (Robert Koch Institut, Ständige Impfkommission) !
That's certainly one way of getting GnuMed installed on GPs'
desktops ...
