As in all information in the SOAP area it should not become medical records (I 
beleive) until accepted as such by the user and implicitly saved - by either 
hitting a function key (I use F12 to save all currently unsaved data) or 
clicking a save icon on the task bar. It is not infrequent that we want to 
modify details as we write - just as we do in written clinical notes.
