Add support for CSV LOINC Database in IIB Healthcare Pack

IIB HCP v4.0.0.0 current supports the old TAB-Delimited LOINC Database, however, LOINC stopped providing this particular format in 2013 and they have moved to a CSV format.
If I want/need to use the LOINC database in a Data Analysis project I'm forced to convert the CSV database to TAB-Delimited.

    Idea Review. As part of our policy for regularly reassessing aged ideas we have recently discussed this enhancement request again. This has not been a popular suggestion since it was opened (1 vote in 5 years) so unfortunately on this occasion it has been decided that we won't be taking this idea further forward as a business priority.

    RFE Review. Apologies for the length of time this RFE has been in Submitted status. We agree that this enhancement suggestion would improve the product and make Data Analysis easier to achieve by updating our currency with LOINC. We will continue to monitor this RFE for popularity with a view to actioning in a future release. For now, status is updated to Uncommitted Candidate.
