MedMorph's support of Encounter Disposition

The MedMorph project supports the addition of this element but recommends a change in the definition to read: "The category or kind of location after discharge. For example, a patient may be discharged to home, discharged against medical advice, or expired." ---- Applicable Standard for the data element: HL7 FHIR -  Hospital encounter discharge disposition: http://hl7.org/fhir/ValueSet/encounter-discharge-disposition -----
