The system provides the clinician with the ability to create a "Problem" in a patient's medical records, and then enter notes and medication against that problem.

The Problem can have a lifetime that spans multiple visits and provides a way of looking at the notes and medication related to the problem. When looking at the the Medical Records summary, the items belong to the problem will be spread throughout the medical history, however, by using the Problems tab, one can see all the items associated with the one problem gathered together.

Note however, that caution should be exercised if medication entries are made against the problem because these will not be charged for, ie no invoice line item will be created for the medication.

The problem has a status which is set to either Un-Resolved or Resolved.
