Presently the menu command

        EMR > Add / edit > Measurement(s)

brings forward an input box whose completion is disruptive because:

1) it demands a responsible provider for the measurement and
2) it demands a problem to be assigned

I would suggest that

1) responsible provider be handled as follows:

(a) when the user *is* a provider, pre-populate with the user
(b) when the user is *not * a provider
        when an in-praxis primary was set for this patient
                --> pre-populate with the in-prxais provider

2) is harder to solve because if a patient does not yet have any problems, the 
first visit will likely see the clinician opening the Notes widget and 
beginning to capture some information, however a measurement cannot be created 
(saved) without assigning a problem, so this enforces on the user the need to 
first create and name a problem (which gets automatically closed) even before 
they have necessarily decided what is going on.
