Unless I'm mistaken, the specific test doesn't have a value. But that's
a bug, it should tell you that. I looked at other error handling, and
seems I wasn't displaying the errors.

When I was badly coding most of the error handling, I said to myself...
I'll display tests in lab reports, but if they have no value, then if
you look for them, I'll give you an error. Now I realize that's
confusing. I'll push a commit to display the value-less tests.

If you don't want to do it through the interface, I still think
a Proteus script is what you are looking for. It allows you to work with
models like a client: update values, add new rows, etc. About the
documentation, not yet. The hl7 v2 work was just pushed, so hopefully
get some documentation on it soon. As I said, no write support though.

For me, the main reason I haven't added write support is because there
is already synchronization among instances, which means write support is
for non-Health systems (mostly). FHIR uses versioning to figure out what's
newest, but that's still difficult, and I mostly ignored it. Hehe.

To be honest, I'm not too familiar with SNOMED or ICD10. I've looked up
code values in both, and things like that, but little more. I don't
think you are talking about, for example, 'Mild', 'Moderate', etc. which
Health does use, and which are SNOMED concepts. You are thinking more
robust, so I would have to say no. I think, however, that moving the
models closer to SNOMED concepts and values is a good goal.

I'll get that commit out and thanks for finding my bad coding!
