I am a prime candidate for electronic health care record keeping because I am a patient and a wired one at that. The linked article below (PDF format) describes the lack of integration as a political and not technical matter. I can add to this where I have 3 different systems for keeping medical records, and none of them can talk to each other. That is unacceptable and must change if we are to fulfill the promise of the Affordable Care Act (ACA-Obamacare). All rights reserved to the Tech Republic author.
