Liz, thanks. Very interesting scenario. I believe GNUmed can
deal with it - it would import the test result twice. This
is a classic split brain situation so all a poor computer
can do is go ahead and split. Because, in reality, there
still is only one request (as far as GNUmed/the requesting
physician is concerned). Even if the labs choose to not
honour reality.
