Not sure myself some days!!
Basically there's a big project in the UK at the moment to make everybody's medical records available electronically so if you go to your GP (family practitioner), hospital or paramedics they can 'dial in' to your record without having to rely on paper (probably locked away in some archive somewhere). I have a patch of 20 GP practices who I go round training them up to record medical information accurately so should the worst happen and you have a car crash miles from home and paramedics come to scrape you up the record that they dial in to is correct and they don't give you an antibiotic you are allergic to for example. They can find out your past history and current medication as well as allergies.
I also help extract that information from GP clinical systems for audit purposes to help plan services within the NHS.
Well you did ask...
