Don’t Risk Your Health (Data) with Paper

Walk into your doctor’s office and you’ll likely witness the trappings of those last holdouts of the digital revolution.  As you enter, you will be dazzled by the patchwork curtain of color-coded manila folders behind the reception desk, each one plump with personal data, most of it outdated but all of it exposed to potential neglect, error or abuse.  You’ll see a jar on the reception counter, brimming with ballpoint pens topped with plastic daisies.
