If you put it this way I clearly see the answer to my
question. The thing is that initially (when entering a new
past medical history item from another encountlet progress
note editor) one is offered a "one-line" field only. Hence the
(wrong) temptation to keep that in the "old" progress note,

Yes it would, eventually.

Huh, it works in a different way :-)

I hear the patient say: "uh, and then, back when I was at age
11 I underwent removal of the appendix". I think to myself:
"Hey, that's a past medical history item, let's trial that
spiffy new widget the developers tell me I paid my last support
fee for, and curse them if it ain't any good !" So off I go
typing "phx" into the progress note (in a Soap line). Right
after typing the "x" in "phx" up pops the past medical history
widget and I can seemlessly keep typing "s/p append" <TAB> "11
years" <TAB> "thanks $deity we don't need to worry about
appendicitis in this Crohn patient" thereby filling the fields
"condition", "age onset", "progress note". Hitting <ENTER>
will save them into the EMR as a past medical history item
(clin_health_issue), replace the "phx" in the original
progress note line with "s/p append at age 11 years", and
close the popup.
