Smart cards, DVDs, CDs, etc.

Responding to a recent posting, Pat Keith of Ocala, Florida reports as follows:

I was most interested to read in your last posting of the reference to "smart cards" which hold patient information. I relate the recent use of a similar tool:

Our retired pastor was visiting friends and family in NY when he experienced changes in his vision. After some extensive testing in a hospital on Long Island (Stony Brook area, I believe), it was determined that he was having a recurrence of cancer in the form of brain tumors. All of his testing results, reports, X-rays and MRIs were included on a DVD and/or CD and prevented the repeat of testing in FL, allowing his radiation treatments to begin the day after he flew home. High marks to that Long Island hospital!

Pat is a retired school teacher and administrator. We share two grandsons.
