      Description

      Suggestion to replace:

      "Many organizations can be involved in an EpisodeOfCare; however each organization will have its own EpisodeOfCare resource instance that tracks its responsibility with the patient. "

      with:

      "Many organizations can be involved in an EpisodeOfCare. Usually each organization will have its own EpisodeOfCare resource instance that tracks its responsibility with the patient. In tightly integrated care (such as maternity care or cancer treatment involving multiple providers) EpisodeOfCare may be used to model the joint care effort in a single EpisodeOfCare."

      Probably managingOrganization ? 0..1 would then need to be managingOrganization ? 0..*
