      Description

      Other FHIR IGs, including the newest US Core profile on Organization fix identifier.system to "http://hl7.org/fhir/sid/us-npi" in NPI slices and don't require identifier.type. Unless supporting identifier.type is important for DEQM functionality, it would reduce implementation burden to not require it in the NPI slice.

      If the type is important, why is the type constrained to PRN rather than NPI as both are in table v2-0203?
