    Re: Kinda like...

    Actually, this technology does exist and there are health facilities that are using it. What it sounds like you are wanting, however, is portability, the ability to take your records to any physician or facility. While a flash drive is one option, you also can create a personal health record in Microsoft HealthVault where you can list all of your recent visits, diagnoses, etc., so that it is available online whenever you need it. As more facilities and doctors shift to EHRs, the ability to communicate directly with your physician and share important information, will continue transpire.
