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.

The tag is also used to mark a patient's death, when 'the death of the patient' is the reason for exiting from care, by providing an additional dropdown to set the cause of death. If the user selects the reason dropdown answer as "Patient Died", a new dropdown will be visible for the user to enter the 'Cause of Death'. The possible causes for patient's death are specified by setting the global property concept.causeOfDeath. This should point to a question concept; the associated answer concepts will be used to populate the cause of death dropdown presented to the user.

If user selects the 'Cause of Death' dropdown answer as "Other Non-coded", there will be another text field visible to manually enter the reason for the death, as the exact cause is not given in the cause dropdown. Here the user can type any of the reason,description etc. which caused the patient's death. 

Once the cause of death and other reason text fields are filled out and submitted for a certain patient, the death obs can't be undone, However it is possible to change the reason for exit field back to an answer other than "Patient Died", so the exit observation can be edited back. Then it will not display the death fields' entries but the death obs still exists. It is also possible to edit the cause of death and other reason fields too.
