HERON Coralville includes new modifiers for Medications

HERON Coralville includes new i2b2 Modifiers for Medications, which allow for refined medications queries constrained by frequency, quantity and refill amount. Additionally these modifiers are aligned with the GPC ontology, as well as SCILHS, providing multi-site support and validation for related HERON queries.
