Many times when working with medical information, healthcare professionals are presented with a summary of a patient record. When questions arise about this information it can be useful to view the information in its original context. We propose to use superimposed information, defined as an information source that includes encapsulated addresses to potentially fine-grained information in other information sources, as a way of enabling the ability to revisit fine-grained information. In this paper we show how the Guava (GUI-As-View) framework can be extended to define references to individual attribute values present in data-bound controls in a forms-based information system. These addresses, called g-seeds, can be created directly in the user interface of a Guava-enabled information system, or generated automatically for each data value returned from a query.
