This tag is used to record the scenario where a patient exits care. It operates in a similar manner to the exit from care functionality on the patient dashboard, providing a date field  and a reason dropdown to the user. To exit a patient from care, the date field should be set to the date of the patient's exit and the reason dropdown set to the reason for the patient's exit. Exiting a patient from care (by setting the date and exit reason) is not mandatory, however once the fields are filled out and submitted for a certain patient, the exit can't be undone, hence the fields can't be set back to empty. However it is possible to edit the date and reason fields.

The possible reasons for exiting care are specified by setting the global property concept.reasonExitedCare. This should point to a question concept--; the associated answer concepts will be used to populate the reason dropdown presented to the user.
