@Maryam, for sure, today's healthcare organizations are driven by costs and risks, to meet regulatory requirements and improve patient outcomes. They are in an amazing period of mergers and acquisitions to survive. But when done right, healthcare is a very powerful economic engine. University health systems when done right are the cash cow that pays for the rest of higher ed at that institution.

Philanthropic healthcare is long gone, most hospitals are run like a corporate environment to remain competitive and comply with new legislation. The costs have to be kept in check or insurance companies will check them for the hospitals!

When all was said and done, the winning answer was analytics that lower healthcare costs. And it wasn't even close -- cancer research and unified health records trailed by a lot. As in business, so in healthcare: Save us money or we won't bother.

In the event of a natural disaster, an act of terrorism, an accidental explosion or any other catastrophic event in which source records may be destroyed, one's health records would be better protected if stored electronically on a cloud server. Along the same lines, if a health care provider suddently shuts its doors (for any reason), patients should be able to access, download or transfer their records.

Yes, unified health records, please! Encrypt it within an inch of its life. Make the banks/insurance companies pay for it, since they're at least as much the beneficiaries as the patients are of this overdue element in good healthcare.
