    Description

      The BR&R team would like to extend Observation by adding a result value type that would assist data recipients in being able to process the results they receive.

      This indicates what the type of the result value is if the test was done (completed).

      There are 6 types:

      C - Coded
      N - Numeric
      T - Text
      G - Greater Than (quantifiable limit)
      L - Less Than (quantifiable limit)
      R - Range

      If a test is cancelled, the Type should be left blank.
