I have shrunk the screen to better show the screenshot.

Presently, if I type into the input area to the right of "Emergency contact, 
the text is not saved.

Is the" intended to support a phrasewheel? Can this be the same phrasewheel as 
is used in the patient search field? if the person is not found, can the user 
be given the option to create a new person in GNUmed?

Should person deletion in GNUmed be updated, so as to not permit deletion 
(violation of referential integrity) when the person is linked in this kind of 
way, to another person?

Is the unlabelled area below the emergency contact intended to hold 
other-person identity information without creating the person?

What about Primary doctor? Will doctors exist as persons in GNUmed? We know 
that the answer for doctor-users within the praxis, the answer will be yes, 
however in my province of British Columbia we have > 10,000 doctors so I am not 
sure whether they should all be created in the persons table. But maybe they 

One of the practical considerations to keep in mind is when a related data file 
(as describes these 10,000 + doctors) update becomes available. If these 
doctors exist as persons, then it should be desirable to be able to isolate 
which of these persons' addresses and phone numbers (their office praxis 
numbers) should be updated, without deleting their home numbers or their 
unpublished back-office line previously disclosed to us and recorded in GNUmed 
and which we phone to make referrals.
