The notes are really the gren ticks, the line could be either show a note covering several visits, or a "period of care" either infered from the fact that the diagnostic was the same for all the notes on the line, or indicated by the phyician entering the note as "followup".

History (the 2 pregnancies) is shown twice here to illustrate that it can be put in front of the notes (may be with a different color since this is not hard data but patient provided information?) or in a specificHistory facet at the bottom.

The event list shows all the mos recent events. The status also on the right of the display.
