Interesting, they equate "reviewed" with clinical relevance.

Should we maybe move technically_abnormal back into
test_result ? Sure enough it doesn't make too much sense to
flag documents to be technically_abnormal. For some it does
(say, a trans-thoracic cardiac echo), for some it doesn't
(say, a discharge summary). Or we might remove the not null
constraint on reviewed_doc_objs only.

A valid point. I would suggest adding a table


for "seen" but unmatchable (at the time) results. We also
need to be careful with the terms "reviewed", "seen",
"clinically_relevant" here since, yes, we can often
ascertain whether an unmatchable result is
technically_abnormal but, no, we cannot really know whether
that's clinically_relevant or not. So I'd strongly suggest
thinking of rows in unmatchable_test_results as
"checked_to_be_unmatchable" instead of "reviewed" or

Well, in GNUmed you can always go to the patient's chart and
review the new data in the lab sheet. It's just a matter of
widgetry to allow for a button [open patient lab sheet].
