That's a valid point, too. What is the life cycle of health information? 
What is relevant when you're 2 versus when you're 13 (puberty, folks), 
18 (majority), middle aged and then older? Do records fall off the back 
end once you reach an age? Which information is valuable at which stage? 
When you end up with a (guessing) 5000 page PDF health record, what does 
the provider need to pay attention to? How do they find it?

Just a collection of data is useless if it's not accurate (which some of 
it clearly is not), valid for the question, and undiscoverable.

Too many questions/problems to trust this thing blindly, leaving aside 
the privacy and confidentiality problems.
