14.12.0 OrderedDistribution

Clinical Decision Support Work GroupMaturity Level: 0Standards Status: Trial Use
This type is still undergoing development and review by the appropriate Workgroups. At this time, is considered only as a draft design not suitable for production implementation

The OrderedDistribution data type is series of statistics in a logical order

Note: the OrderedDistribution structure allows modifier extensions.
