      Change probability to be a choice of Quantity | Range, rather than a decimal. Update the invariant to require that the Quantity be a percentage, just like the percentages in the Range.

      Description

      Note:  This is a copy of FHIR-25174 which was closed as not persuasive (incorrectly in my opinion).  We discussed the issue on a CDS conference call and resolved to open a new issue instead of reopening that one.

      -------

      According to http://build.fhir.org/search.html#table the data type 'Range' should map to search parameters of type 'quantity'.

      However, the RiskAssessment-prediction search parameter has an expression like "RiskAssessment.prediction.probability" while this element can be either a decimal or a Range.

      Possible resolutions to this issue include:

      A. Updating the search summary table at 3.1.1.9 to mention that a Range can be mapped to a search parameter of type number; or

      B. Updating the search parameter expression to only select this element when its of type decimal (e.g.

      RiskAssessment.prediction.probability as decimal)
