Standard/IG: Standard Artifact ID, Name: <<Artifact ID, Name>>

Issue

The LRI IG contains a Newborn profile but never defines the time period patient is considered a newborn

Recommendation

Add usage note to PID-7 Date/Time of Birth. Usage Note: The definition of "Newborn" for purposes of the LRI IG is for newborn screenings; the timeframe is up to 120 hours/5 days.

Rationale

Recommend as errata to the LRI IG
