I'm working on a Data Vault model for Clinical EMR data. I'm a little unsure on the best way to model a Link to capture Lab Results. I have an Encounter Hub and a Lab Hub. There can be multiple lab tests performed multiple times during an encounter. For example a CBC blood test can be performed 10 times in one encounter. My initial thinking is to have an Encounter_Lab link and a satellite off that link that holds the Order Date, Result Date, Result Value,Unit of Measurement . The data is immutable and I considered using a NonHistorized link, but I'm not dealing with streaming or real-time data. I just wanted to get some feedback on which approach would be more in line with DV 2.0 standards...

Thanks in advance,
