Two separate workflows for user interactions?

Two separate workflows to register/allow 'Independent-care-seekers' and 'Caregivers for dependents?'

Independent-Care-seekers would be mostly urban computer users posting their own cases who can register emulating the healthboard pattern of one click registration. http://www.healthboards.com/

Just take a look at how they get 'users' to register for their site:http://www.healthboards.com/boards/register.php

While many of their rules http://www.healthboards.com/boards/faq.php?faq=faq_hb do not apply to our workflow we can emulate their skeleton that works around the problem (of signed-patient-consent-form or one-click-disclaimer dilemma) we are facing now.

Caregivers for dependents (comprising of our Mathabhanga social workers or patient relatives or even medical students and health professionals reporting their cases) will need to go with the current workflow and will not be allowed to post without the uploaded consent form. This workflow is actually borrowed from and currently active in the BMJ Case Reports journal as all the case reports are made by similar caregivers (mostly health-professionals) who have to upload their signed patient consent forms for their case reports to be peer-reviewed.

As currently much of our activity on http://care.udhc.co.in/ is through 'Caregivers for dependents' i guess we would have to make do with the current-workflow (which is mostly based on the BMJ model) but one can think of creating a separate window in the website for the 'Independent urban care-seeker' (Healthboard model) who can get in without the consent form bottle neck with a one-click disclaimer?
