    Description

      The current documentation for the patient end point as indicated here https://rest.openmrs.org/?shell#create-a-patient provides creates the impression that we always have to first create a person object and then convert it to a patient.

      This, however, is not practical as all patients are persons and therefore the need for a clear documentation for the patient endpoint to indicate how a patient can be registered in the system along with a person object.

      For more information the discussion can be followed here. https://talk.openmrs.org/t/combined-end-point-for-creating-a-person-and-patient/35868/7
