If *that* is the definition of "the note is signed" then we
already support that because for us *any* note is "signed"
in that sense: we record any and all modifications of a
note (including user ID and timestamp, of course).

"print a copy" - well, there's some support for exporting
the current note in Medistar import format - that can be
printed. Also, we support exporting the entire record as a
journal. That would include the note.

We support reports but at a very low level. For
certification it is probably better to use OpenOffice or
Crystal Reports or Jasper Reports connecting to the GNUmed

No problem :-)

Sure !!

It becomes "history", not "draft", but, yeah, once again we
are ahead of the requirement.
