Abstract

Let us go back to Chap.  1 and in particular to Sect.  1.2 and have another look at the Register of Consultations of a Commune Health Station. In order to explain the basic ideas we reproduce below, as Table 11.1, a very simplified version of a page of this register. The columns “Insured or free of charge”, “Profession”, “Ethnicity”, “Place of treatment”, “Person consulted” and “Remarks” were omitted and others modified; in particular the entries for “symptoms” and “treatments” were drastically shortened.
