      • Keep as 1..1 MS
      • Keep MS on dateTime.

      Make sure other options (performedAge, performedString) are allowed so when a patient is unsure the string or age option is available.

    Description

      The Procedure profile states that each procedure must have information regarding when the procedure was performed (Procedure.performed[x]); however, this information is not always available to the provider.  For example, a patient may report a surgery in the distant past but may not remember the date or even the year.  This information should be in the category of “must support” rather than “must have”.
