A triple salute is three *sets* of two-key actions. In point of fact, to reach 
Measurements from the keyboard, we are talking at least

        Alt-E selects EMR menu *

        (Alt ?) A selects Add/Edit menu item

        (maybe here need a right-arrow key)

        (Alt ?) M selects submenu item Medication

        (Alt ?) M selects next submenu item Measurement

        hit "return"

so we are talking at least 5 or 6 steps, assuming ( * at the first step above ) 
that menus are the first priority and that "Alt E" will not first evoke some 
other active letter elsewhere in the window (e.g. on a button _E_dit )

This would be really helpful. Ideally


for example


would both evoke the measurement widget and input the BP into the first field 
which is "Test"
