New API Speaks Business Language

The CreatePatient API programmatically creates a record to represent a new patient. This allows developers to work with the concept of “patient,” specific to Health Cloud, rather than Account, Contact, or Person Account. CreatePatient works whether you are using Health Cloud's Individual record type or the person account standard object for the patient.

Who: Users with the Health Cloud Permission Set License assigned to them can work with this feature.

How: Pass in standard or custom fields in the Account and Contact object as arguments. Custom Fields are populated as provided in a map along with the namespace. Custom field entries that do not match custom fields in Account or Contact are ignored.

If the creation of Account or Contact fails, the entire transaction is rolled back.
