      Add guidance for representing patient name suffix and previous patient name to the [US Core Patient Profile](StructureDefinition-us-core-patient.html#mandatory-and-must-support-data-elements)

      Description

      United States Core Data for Interoperability (USCDI) requires a patient suffix and previous patient name

      it was not addressed when drafting the updates to US Core

      It is defined in the final documentation here: https://www.healthit.gov/isa/sites/isa/files/2020-03/USCDI-Version1-2020-Final-Standard.pdf

      Add guidance for representing patient name suffix and previous patient name to the [US Core Patient Profile](StructureDefinition-us-core-patient.html#mandatory-and-must-support-data-elements) using the elements

      suffix --> Patient.name.suffix
      previous name --> Patient.name.period
      update narrative and examples to reflect changes

      pre-applied in current build
