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.

Portable health data for vacation?
One of the scenarios where the national exchange of health data is particularly useful would be where you go on vacation to the other side of the country and need to visit a hospital or physican and would like your health data to follow you.

How soon will this become commonplace?
