Rogerio, can you give me good examples of non-chronic/acute
conditions that would make it obvious they should be health
issues rather than episodes (standalone or under another
health issue).

I am tempted to equate chronic with health issue and episode
with acute.

Fine by me ... this makes a lot of sense, AND it facilitates the notion of the ultimate definition of Health Issues and Episodes.

Mind you, all this is just the foundation of the problem
list sorting you want. When we straighten out the
foundations we can likely do the sorting/displaying you
wanted. Your example would appear to me like this:


       x: issue, active
       y: issue, active
       z: issue, inactive


       e: episode, open, standalone
       f: episode, open, standalone
       z: episode, open, under issue z

Would that make sense ? This would mean that, by definition,
health issues are considered chronic conditions.

This is exacly what I was hoping for
