Extension
Element IdExtension
Definition

Provides a computable unit of measure associated with numeric questions to support subsequent computation on responses. This is for use on items of type integer and decimal, and it's purpose is to support converting the integer or decimal answer into a Quantity when extracting the data into a resource.

Cardinality0..1 This element is affected by the following invariants: ele-1
