I may be the only one on here who feels this way, but ...... I want my medical information on a computer. If I travel from here to there and have an accident, I want that hospital/doctor/specialist to be able to look up my prior medical information so that they know my medical needs, blood pressure, etc. etc. There is nothing in my medical records that I cannot share ....... and, when you think about it, many of us share medical information right here on this site!

If your physician sends you to a specialist he looks at your record and says "I see you had blah blah blah in 2010 .................... If they are going to treat me I want them to know all about me. I am highly allergic to two medications and that information needs to be in my records and known to anyone treating me.

There are ways to carry the same information on your cell phone - in the "cloud" - or via any number of apps such as Microsoft Health Vault which is free. The less information we allow the Feds to have the better, IMHO. Big government does not result in better government....but that is a different discussion.

This thread will be closed as it has strayed from discussion of the OP's concerns regarding his stay at the hospital. If you wish to start a new thread discussing the pros and cons of the EMR/EHR, please feel free to do so.
