I am sent information about my patient, which I did not request.

I have no idea why they had a complete blood count (which was normal). Maybe it 
was for insurance. 

Maybe an insurance company sent me a request for information.

I suppose all of these could be covered by an unattributed episode

        "received information"

which could always be closed (and despite which being closed could always be 
added to by an importer).

Maybe there is an argument that unless and until the clinician would reassign 
some better reason why it was done, it could remain under

        "received information"

and maybe the argument that it is better that such information be so-tagged 
instead of haning under the uncertainty of "null"?
