For background, read this “anti” article (with at least one “pro” responder) in the MJA which I have marked up using Diigo:
I think a national system would be a GREAT idea if it:
- is 100% secure for users and medical professionals eg by making use of Blockchain technology or the SAFE Network in the future for data storage.
- would include ALL historical and current data in a computable format (not just scanned docs).
- had some Artificial Intelligence built-in to provide advice for the benefit of the client so that they are able to sensibly have meaningful discussions with medical professionals.
- made clear a person’s intention to be frozen if they didn’t survive some medical emergency.
