More EMR stuff

If this works, this is an ideal implementation. I would love to have acccess, in the ER, to a patient's full medical record.
BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee wants to put TennCare enrollees' medical records online as part of a plan to reduce costs and fraud, and improve care under the state's troubled health plan for people without insurance.

The program would put the files on a secure Web site so doctors in different offices — or even in different cities — could see a patient's medical chart and avoid duplication or prescribing drugs and tests that may be harmful.
