    Whilst I think its a great idea, I find it difficult to believe that anybody anywhere is going to have the resources to gather and keyin all of the data into any central database in a format that would allow for relevant queries to be conducted either for a genuine personal medical emergency or for research purposes.

    Surely the resources required to summarise/reformat / keywording the medical data for 20Million+ people will be humungous. Our local GPs say they have no access to it yet.

    How would it be done and how many years backlog of data would the data be keyed in ? I guess it would be simple enough to just dump a heap of scanned pdf files onto some computers somewhere but that would be very difficult to run queries on.

    Just imagine the mistakes that will happen.

    Doctor: Hello Chris Jones, says here in My Health Records that you are due for a mammogram.

    Chris Jones: But I am a man.

    Doctor: It clearly says here on the database you are a woman. Now we are the experts here not you.

    They are probably only going to keep information going forward.
