transfer/move archetype?

Hi again,

I was wondering if somebody has put some thoughts on a "patient 
transfer" archetype which would serve to record the transfer of patients 
between different wards within a hospital. Why would it be interesting 
to have this information archetyped? For example we'd like to calculate 
the time that a catheter has been applied at the ICU. As a catheter 
often doesn't get removed when the patient leaves the ICU, we need to 
calculate the time by using both the catheter documentation and the 
patient transfer data.

In our case, SAP i.s.h. med has a simple data model for patient 
transfers (Patient-ID, Type of transfer/move, timestamp, department, 
ward, sometimes (bed)). Are there any use cases you can think of that 
would require additional information? Would the creation of such an 
archetype would be of interest for someone else?

Kind regards,
