Centralized data gathering would allow for easy access for the Socialized Health Care.
We could actually look at genetic factors while we are at it and suggest the best diet lifestyle according to the medical history of your DNA...
Hmmm..could be Utopian or Dystopian (spl)depending on your point of view!
I agree, glass half empty / half full.
Really with all the micro/nano tech we are becoming saturated in, it would definitely give the men in white a clearer picture as to what is going on
in your body. This could be both good and bad. however I still think it would be very unlikely that something like this could be implemented in the
near future. Look at Veri Chip for example. I would say that they are fairly mainstream, yet not mandatory or readily implemented.
"well Mr. Smith, after evaluating your dietary data, we've come to the conclusion you have far too much fat and sugar in your diet. Maybe cut back
on the McDonalds in the future. And also, we've noticed you eat far too much at one time. We suggest smaller meals spread through out the day.
Your evaluation was brought to you by Akzo Nobel...."
Centralized records are already a part of the system. I'm sure down in the States (even private insurance companies in Canada has centralized
records.) the insurance companies have centralized records.
Here we have a central health system, once the hospital know who you are, bang, they have a cursory view of your health history IE your a diabetic,
epileptic, etcetera (they have to go to your family doctor for specific details regarding your history though).
Who know you could become your own "flash" health record will all of your information readily downloaded to the doctors or "health authorities"
who ever they may be.
This story reminds me of some British Soldier friends getting their blood type and major allergies tattooed on the sides of their chests near their
elbows (incase their arms get blown off). I guess they are their own health records too!
