    Description

      The current example Practitioner identifier value is "330". Since Type 1 NPIs are always 10 digit values, I recommend we change the value to something more realistic like "9999999999". While examples are only informative and not normative, this does help to make it clear that we're showing an NPI and not some other type of identifier.
      Similar issues may also apply to other examples.
