Just realized there can be two meanings for this…

Primary doctor *within* the praxis group


Primary doctor *overall* when the patient's main doctor is not a member of the 
praxis group. This is true both for specialists who might still use GNUmed and 
it is also true in a family practice where some patients get their care 
*mainly* somewhere else but still come to the praxis for care. Think

- tourist area, where a praxis serves the local population but also accepts to 
see visitors
- typical family practice where as a courtesy the doctors accept to see a sick 
visiting relative of a patient of the praxis

So shall we provide for two fields in the Demographic > Social network?

Is the in-praxis doctor of sufficient relevance to clinical care that (for 
example) the staff and the clinicians need to see this very quickly? I am even 
wondering if this information should be somewhere in the main status bar. Maybe 
the first tag (in the list of tags) could be a Cadeuceus and the info put in 
there? Maybe that tag could be hard-coded abd scripted to be created and 
updated when a value for

        in-praxis main clinician

would be elsewhere entered and updated?
