Use Case Description:

Patient uses a gender identity of hijra that is not in minimum value set. System supports extending the set of GI values. The added gender identity value needs to be recorded as patient gender identity. Hijra must be exchanged along with a mapped value from the min set. Need to allow that the mapping may be unique for this institution or patient.

Need to also consider how to communicate this added gender identity value to a common updated. In addition need to consider how to support implementation specific display text and then share this across implementations.
