Issue

Custodian currently allows only one telecom element (see ClinicalDocument/custodian/assignedCustodian/representedCustodianOrganization/telecom). This makes it impossible to record both a telephone number and an email address for a custodian, or even separate phone and fax numbers.

Recommendation

  • Allow multiple telecom elements.

Rationale

Multiple telecom elements would allow phone, email, fax, etc. vs. requiring the author to pick only one of the above.
