Emergency Healthcare and Public Health - Storing Health Data

A main repository with two backup computer servers for all citizens as patients in the US could be very helpful - for all their medical data. This repository could be organized by age group and geographical location. That way access to this repository would not be on a distributed system which might not be solid and reliable. Distributed systems in healthcare need to be handled with a lot of care, because you don't want the wrong people accessing data and changing it. Appropriate password assignment to healthcare workers across a distributed system should be organized on a flowchart so as to better manage who has access to a patient record and who is allowed to change it. Such information could be critical, from a medical perspective. -Proposed by: June R Massoud, Computer Engineer
