I am not really convinced of the idea of premature
information. Now, of course, while I am talking with the
patient and taking notes those notes are "incomplete" and
"draft". However, when I save something I better be prepared
someone else reads it - if necessary I had better add a
blurb regarding pending incoming information such as
"awaiting X-Ray results". This certainly doesn't cater for
the case where one is called away and simply cannot properly
finish the note properly but reality will always override
any model one way or another.

It may at a later time be sensible to implement actual
signing of notes.
