MedMorph's support of Encounter Diagnosis

The MedMorph project supports the addition of Encounter Diagnosis to USCDI V2. We propose a change to the definition to read: "The diagnoses associated with the encounter, represented by diagnoses codes." This will support implementations by identifying the respective terminologies for these diagnoses codes.
