CDC's Consolidated Comment for USCDI v5

Proposed change: Please ADD to the "Additional Specifications" entries: Vital Records Common Profiles Library FHIR IG - Records Birth and Fetal Death Reporting -

NACCHO supports CDC's comment.


Why not add Death Time at the same time you add Birth Time?

Why not add Death Date/Time at the same time you add Birth Date/Time? These seem like they make a perfect pair of data elements. Wouldn't it be efficient to clarify both of these in a single effort?
