[Health] Setting patient CLASS in GNU Health to match the FHIR guidelines?

I think we also need to bring the patient CLASS (= patient
type/location/encounter) into line with FHIR.
Classification of the encounter
This value set defines its own terms in the
Code Display Definition
An encounter during which the patient is hospitalized and stays
outpatient An encounter during which the patient is not
ambulatory An encounter where the patient visits the practitioner
in his/her office, e.g. a G.P. visit.
emergency An encounter where the
patient needs urgent care.
home An encounter where the practitioner visits
the patient at his/her home.
field An encounter taking place outside the
regular environment for giving care.
daytime An encounter where the patient
needs more prolonged treatment or investigations than outpatients, but who do
not need to stay in the hospital overnight.
virtual An encounter that takes
place where the patient and practitioner do not physically meet but use
electronic means for contact.
Should the "default setting" when creating new
patients be "ambulatory"?
What do you think?
