      Description

      As a medical clinic registration clerk, I would like to to be able to register a patient in the system who already has a patient identifier. Currently, the patient registration module supports auto-generating a new patient identifier when the patient is saved.

      However, there may be times when a patient arrives at a clinic with an existing patient identifier (eg. if they have previously registered at another clinic and received an id card).

      In this case, we would like to provide the ability to record the patient's existing patient identifier and not auto-generate a new identifier when the patient is registered.

      This option should be added as an option in the workflow that does not impede the normal registration flow when the system is generating an identifier. On the Confirm page of the registration flow, there should be a message such as "Unless provided, an identifier will be automatically generated for this patient". Next to this, there should be a button for "Provide Identifier". If clicked, the user will be prompted to enter an identifier number and then brought back to the confirm page. If an identifier was provided, the system should not generate one.
