      Description

      The search parameter for patient name states:

      A server defined search that may match any of the string fields in the HumanName, including family, give, prefix, suffix, suffix, and/or text

      https://www.hl7.org/fhir/us/core/SearchParameter-us-core-patient-name.html

       

      However, this isn't accurate, because the real requirement on search by name is listed in the 'Mandatory Search Parameter' section of the Patient Profile:

      SHALL support searching for a patient by a string match of any part of name using the name search parameter

      https://www.hl7.org/fhir/us/core/StructureDefinition-us-core-patient.html#mandatory-search-parameters

      The search parameter description should be updated to have the same language that is in the profile to avoid confusion.
