However, don't get this wrong. There's no explicit notion of
"receiver" as far as the database is concerned. Receivers
simply are persons/identities in some way related to the

Any identity in GNUmed can have any number of addresses
associated with them. External care entries actually really
link to an org unit rather than a specific person (for which
there's a free-text field in the care entry table such that a

specified). Each org unit can have one address associated
with it (and any number of comm channels).
