    than having to sign off and have something accessed (hoping the info you gave them is all correct) before they can get relevant records. Presumably all GP's will have to deal with an influx of random patients who no longer have to wait to return home where their insurance is good...and if there's no database than I can see a massive pain in the ass for them.

    While you dream of Utopia, we're here on Earth, getting things done.

    •  You think GPs generally consult (0+ / 0-)

      records beforehand?  Typically they are literally reviewing the last few visits notes RIGHT before they walk in the room.  There is no way they would request records for a random out-of-towner no matter how "easy" it is.

      •  I would like them to in my case (0+ / 0-)

        Since I have multiple allergies, especially if I'm unconscious.

        I'm thinking about the ER, not the regular doctor's office.
