Digital Dr.'s Office

This morning at my regular scheduled Dr.'s appointment the receptionist announces, "We're going digital. You'll soon be able to access lab results, schedule appointments, and request refills all online."

That's great... I think. Then I started to think, WHAT IF something happens, and everything is wiped out... THEN WHAT!

I am one to embrace technology, and all that it has to offer. But with something as delicate as my medical history, I'm concerned. My bank is backed by FDIC, so if someone should steal all $5, I am guaranteed it's safe return.

Who's protecting my medical records. I know I'm probably over thinking it a bit, but it's heavy on my mind. Call me crazy!

What about technology, and being able to access so much information from just about anywhere in the world are you concerned with?

I wonder the same thing. I don't like the idea of medical history being on the computer.
