Include ReasonCode and ActivityTime attributes in Encounter in CS



Ongoing harmonization work between Patient Care and Patient Administration has indicated that there is a need to harmonize the Encounter class used in both D-MIMs. For many use cases PC uses the Clinical Statement pattern / CMET for the use of Encounter. But these do not have ReasonCOde nor ActivityTime that are essential attributes for PA.


Additional change requests can be expected after the Sept WGM.
