      Description

      Today in the Quality Data Model v5.5 for eCQMs (electronic clinical quality measures), the attribute "Priority" is added to indicate "the urgency of the procedure or the encounter referenced".

      Now we request adding an element of "priority" to represent the same concept in FHIR v4. We'd like to see the same values currently listed under serviceRequest.priority. see below.
