Re: Portable health data for vacation?
If Blair is correct, the use of Direct will be widespread within two years. Sometime this year, it's likely that HISPs will have the capability to search directories of other HISPs anywhere in the country. And as HISPs get accredited, they should all be able to communicate with each other. So this scenario will probably become reality by 2015.

How soon will this become commonplace?
