As the new features and sections were being added to the Patient record form, the form became somewhat cluttered. The improved workflow and better usability should be taken as a primary guidance while doing the ui makeover.
Following the same trend as having table filters on the side of the home page, the patient record form would benefit with addition of 2 collapsable panels:
on the left: table of contents and everything currently displayed before the patient form (permissions, studies, consents, etc)
on the right: various suggestions
Both panels should be collapsible to clear up the space when needed.
