EVALUATION (for assessments, diagnoses, plans, risks, recommendations)

I don't see an evaluation in the execution of a numeric formula, but I can
see it in the recording of an evaluation in terms of the result of
executing the formula. Similar case the calculation of the mean systolic BP
based on a series of events = 140 mmHg (is OBS), and stating "high BP" or
"hypertension" is EV).
