Why not use a chip inside our Medicare card? We need it for treatment 
anyway so why not have a system wherein the treating clinician uploads 
their notes or discharge summary into that chip. Then security is 
dependent on physical access with presumably some sort of PIN/Biometric. 
Chip can be scrambled so unreadable without correct code. Then the 
patient is completely in charge. If they want the treatment recorded 
they have to present the card else it will not be recorded. A true 
patient medical record, My Medical Record!
