MedMorph submitted multiple elements for the Encounter class that were modeled directly from the mustSupport elements of the US Core Encounter profile. What has been proposed in USCDI does not reflect the same structure and we believe will cause difficulty by those using the US Core structure. We are struggling to figure out the linkages between USCDI classes. It has been noted that several elements of an Encounter Participant (e.g., role, NPI, name, etc.) are found in the Care Team Member class, but what information would be exchanged using USCDI Encounter Participant?  Can you get a list of the Participant names? Or, is the Encounter Participant element simply "link" to the Care Team Member class where you can get Name, NPI, etc. ? If so, that needs to be defined/explained in USCDI.
