      The issue of activity did not come up during Argonaut design/development of this profile.

       

      Insert a new end to the sentence following the sentence that ends with "lineage of information": "specifically, what organization was responsible for the most recent action on the resource."

      Add to profile-specific implementation guidance:

      Systems that need to know the activity has occurred SHOULD populate the activity.

      Description
