Currently the process to create a patient from demographics is a two-step

* Create demographic information (the person in party model)
* Once in Patient, we can select the person and create the associated

This has advantages, such as role separations or to enroll people in the
system that are not part of the system of health (eg, relatives, etc..)

Most of the time however, the people we create on the system will be patients.
In this scenario, I think it can be a good idea that if the patient attribute
is set in the demographics section, the related patient will be automatically
created when saving the person.

We will have an attribute on the demographics that can be called "Do not
create target", that will stop at the demographics. Having a generic attribute
name will help us reuse it for other models, such us health institutions,
health professionals or pharmacies.

I think this functionality will speed the patient registration process while
maitaining flexibility.
