In a tightly-constrained model, yes.

I was thinking ahead to how we would handle the absence of a doctor from the 
praxis when it may be necessary for one of the other doctors to check the 
person's inbox. In such a situation we may want to extend the current inbox 
functionality, in place of having to develop a new widget.

If we were to do this, we may need a user-selectable filter which defaults to 
the current user and which identifies the other users whose identity could be 
selected. The inbox header would somewhere show:

        All for <selected user>

Among messages of type

        unreviewed documents
        unreviewed results

it could be really helpful if the message can include whether any of the lab 
results were technically abnormal.

The only other high-level piece to determine would be restrictions around the 
ability to do this. Messages of type

        unreviewed documents
        unreviewed results

do not cost the patient any privacy... it would only be at the point that those 
would be viewed that the undesignated user would get to some detail that maybe 
was not intended for them to see. Privacy issues in documents and results could 
inherit from whatever future protections (say, on types of tests like 
sexually-transmitted including pregnancy testing or psychiatry reports might 
have been "typed" in the praxis backend).

User-generated messages (user to user) might benefit from not having their 
details in the subject line or, if that would make it too hard to visually pick 
out a needed item, then the future functionality might allow a user to 
designate a message as personal or confidential in which case the message top 
line could show as
        (personal) or
or some such.
