      The ServiceType property needs to be consistent with the Appointment property of the same name and update its cardinality to be multiple.

      These changes would be covered by the conditions and procedures that are connected to the encounter. Billing would then run from ChargeItems and the ranked Discharge Diagnosis etc based on the various jurisdiction specific business rules.

      Description

      The patient service changes throughout an Encounter, currently only one ServiceType is supported and, although . documentation is a little unclear, I believe it refers to admission service. It is just as important to capture the changes in service in a similar way to changes in class. Several clinical quality metrics will rely on the discharge service to follow-up on patient care continuation. Can you evaluate adding a serviceType history element?
