Hewlett-Packard Steps up to the Plate:
H-P has announced
that it will join the California state-wide health information exchange initiative, and will assist in the development of a state-wide medical data bank so all 78,000 physicians and 400 hospitals can access the same information set. Such an arrangement would be really helpful to the Angelino who gets into an accident in Oakland and is incapaciated. BUT, this will result in a serious erosion of the privacy of the records, since the list of potential improper viewers of anyone's electronic medical record would be exponentially increased.
