One planning consideration maybe good to mention here is the importance of 
filters. Presently, the inbox has some filters and the Waiting list has other 
filters but both would benefit from some of each others' filters (for example, 
Waiting list will not find for you the subset of existing waiting list items 
which belong to the current patient).

So too here can I anticipate the importance of filters. I am thinking that each 

        Organizational Unit

might be good to be able to filter on.

Commonly I need to identify a lab or pharmacy to phone where the patient can 
only tell me its street.

If I would be able to input a city or street name (ideally inside a category) 
this would quickly help me to find what I want.

I know that screen real estate is always tight. I would think that just as with 
the other plugins, filter fields feel most natural at the top. The ability to 
filter would make it more acceptable to borrow a row of  vertical space from 
each of the upper and lower zones of the screen because filters would 
significantly reduce the numbers of matches and cut down the need to scroll. I 
don't imagine there would be more then 3 or 4 channels per unit. WIth two rows 
of space, one could do a row of headings and a row of filter fields:

Category    |    Organization    |    Organizational Unit    |    Address    |
